Marittie De Villiers

Marittie De Villiers - painter

Marittie De Villiers, born in 1966, is a South African artist presently based in Strand, South Africa.  After earning a BA in communications from Potcehfstroom University, she travelled across America for an extended period of time which inspired her work, which now largely focuses on portraiture.

Inspired by her Travels

Through her travels, Villiers explored and had a closer insight into alternative lifestyles and cultures which now inform much of her work. Coming across a mass of interesting images and people across the world, she uses these as muses in her art. Studying the faces of many different people and expressing different types of emotion fascinates Villiers and continues to inspire her work.

Driven by Emotion

Villers allows the individual in focus to dictate her technique and adapts her style accordingly. She does not follow a specific process, allowing her to be fully spontaneous and creative. In general, she decides on a particular image to concentrate on based from her photographs, sketches or visual imagery. She is then led by her emotions and intuition to paint her canvas.

Established South African Presence  

Marittie De Villiers has solidified her reputation in South Africa, exhibiting in places such as: Boutique Gallery, Harbour Gallery and Tank Art Gallery. She is poised to further develop her international reputation in the future.
