Estelle Marais

Estelle's interest lies in landscapes, portraiture and imaginary

compositions based on mythological and literary themes. In landscapes she enjoys the rhythm, colours, tones and forms which express the atmosphere and character of the land.

In portraiture she places the sitters in the context of a personal, social, historical and cultural background to tell their stories. These works are done in watercolours, acrylics and oils. She also explores her themes in a variety of graphic media, including charcoal, pastels, lino printing and etching.
