Rainer and Hedy Kohl from The Willows celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on
4 September. Rainer and his fiancé Hedy travelled from Germany to South Africa in 1965 and decided to stay. They were married soon afterwards and started a design studio in Pretoria in 1966. Two sons, Oliver and Robin, were born to them.

They operated their own art gallery, ‘Galleria Futura’, in Pretoria for six years. Rainer's first one-man art exhibition was held in 1968 at the SA Arts Association in Pretoria. Numerous private and gallery exhibitions followed. However, Rainer focused on design and illustrations and he only started concentrating on painting again in 2005.

Rainer started exhibiting internationally in 2013.
