Artist Details

Monique van Wyk

I could always draw, I saw details no one else did. It was my dream to become a full time artist. When my art teacher emigrated to new Zealand and asked me to take over, it was finally my chance to live the dream.

I have been teaching art since 2009.

Here are some of my student’s work

 

Top achievements : Rhino painting fetched R43 000 at an auction in 2013.

Hosted an in studio art competition in 2010. As well as art getaway weekend to Clarens.

 

I have done numerous murals including ELB equipment, Actonville primary school, globeflight and my and my friend’s homes.

I have developed my own drawing course and currently working on the painting course.
