She has a passion for watercolours and enjoys sharing her unique approach. With her technical abilities, she experiments with the medium creating innovative works which are often started randomly involving design and colour, allowing the paintings to develop into a resolved experience. Her paintings often depict the role that women play in the life of South Africa.

Bert Touwen

Artist Bio:

Bert is a painter living on the shore of a large dam in the Elgin Valley of the Western Cape in South Africa.
When he retired from farming in 2000, he was able to engage more fully in his favourite pastime: painting. Working mainly in acrylics, his work has a contemporary feel with a graphical aspect as a result of his engineering background.

Bert likes cheerful images in bright colours, reflecting his optimistic view of life. Currently, he paints mostly quirky large portraits or flowers that bloom around him.

Most of his paintings are 1,2 meter square on canvas, large enough for accents in modern homes or business reception areas.

Aiden Taillard

Artist Bio:

Aiden Taillard was born and raised in the Helderberg area. From a very young age he was always drawing
and since then never stopped doing art both as an escape and side hustle. When it came to starting
working he chooses a career in graphic design and little did he know that this will come in handy in
his later decision to become a full-time artist. Looking at his work you can see a strong automotive presence and blue-collar workmanship. His roots come from working in his father’s workshop learning all things about mechanical engineering and also learning about panel beating as
well. ln, his earlier works you can see anything from animals, couples portraits and even sneaker
art.
Now after exploring different subjects he has found his sweet spot and that’s showing the
the craftsmanship of the blue-collar worker in the automotive industry.

Anneke Potgieter

Artist Bio:

My art is an attempt at capturing the innate beauty of the natural world the flowers, plants, birds, and landscapes that surround me.

Anneke Potgieter RISING FROM THE ASHES
Watercolour and charcoal on paper
R6 750


I grew up in the’80s in Cape town, right at the tip of the African continent where the indigenous fynbos abounds. Without any formal training, I’ve been creating art in some form or another my whole life.
Having studied both culinary arts and linguistics, I’ve always had a love for creating something from nothing, be it with food, words, or paint.

Anneke Potgieter THERE IS A STORM A-BREWING
Soft pastel on paper
SOLD


Today I create artworks inspired by Nature in my home studio in Kommetjie. Using primarily soft pastels and watercolours, I try to capture the sense of joy and deep calm that my subjects fill me with.

My art is not a denial of the ugliness and injustices of this world but a celebration of the beauty that exists despite it. This beauty is free to all of us who are willing to see it.

JALAUN SCHULTZ

“Colour is an important element in my art and the feeling and mood that different hues and shades can convey and create.” – Jalaun Schultz

TRANSFORMATION
Acrylic on canvas
R3 750

I am a self-taught artist that resides in Somerset West. Some of my earliest memories are of me drawing – creating has always been my passion. However, it took o few years to get back to that desired place.
After obtaining a qualification in law and spending a few years working – I finally had the time to breathe and focus on creativity after my daughter was born, as I stopped working full time.

Painting for me has always been a joy – a need to express the astounding beauty that often surrounds us often in the small and overlooked things such as a bright yellow lemon from my tree in the garden. The incredible detail in creation never ceases to amaze me and being able to interpret a fraction of that on a canvas is awe-inspiring.


My painting style is realistic, with the occasional nod towards abstraction, to incorporate additional unexpected elements – even if it’s just in the background of o particular artwork. Finding the perfect balance between realism and abstraction is a process that fascinates me – a journey, not just to point out what I see but also what I feel. Artists who inspire me have perfected balancing these opposite ends of the scale.

Additionally, colour is an essential element in my art, as the different shades and hues can set the mood or feeling of a piece.
