Audrey’s painting career naturally evolved out of her career as a ceramic artist.
She first attended classes in Bryanston with Gemma van Schaardenburg and then moved on to fine ceramics with Kim Sacks at her studio in Yeoville.
She relocated to Hermanus in 1990 where she was part owner first of The Bay Studio in St Peter’s Lane and thereafter The Brush Stroke on Marine Drive in one of the historic Godfrey Cottages until 2008.
She retired from producing ceramics in 2005 when she established Audrey Hickman Properties.
She works in all media and is most inspired by color and line. Line work and mark making has become dominant in her current abstract pieces. She’s worked with a number of artists in Hermanus such as Maxi
Steytler and Tertia Knaap, Ken Hunkin, Erica Berry and Shelly Adams… and taken part in many local exhibitions.
She paints and teaches from the Volmoed Art Room from where a small collection of her work may be viewed as well as from the Volmoed Tearoom.
