Marie Prinsloo      

South African Artist

Thank you for visiting my internet site. May you enjoy looking at my paintings and be inspired to visit these beautiful places in our country.

I am fortunate to live in Simon's Town where my studio overlooks False Bay. Seeing the yachts race around the lighthouse, the fisherman's boats, navy vessels, whales and seagulls is enough to inspire anyone to paint.

Layering and experimenting with colour and texture, is a great passion of mine. I'm

inspired by the paintings of the Fauvists,(French Expressionists) and Post Impressionists.

They are brilliant!

I obtained my BA Fine arts degree in 1995 from the University of Stellenbosch. That beautiful town in the Boland will always have a piece of my heart. I still enjoy painting the vineyards, mountains and houses, although I love the sea most.

You can find my paintings at different galleries and my cards and calendars in selected shops around the country or commission me to do something specific.

May you have a happy day.
