Marnitz Steyn

MARNITZ STEYN – I was born deaf and attended the Trans Orange School for the deaf in Pretoria where my talent for drawing was first noticed. I find the Cape landscape a constant source of inspiration.

ELIZE VENTER (1963) – Elize Venter has been a student of Stefan Rossouw since the beginning of 2018. She finds herself with the master that inspired her passion for creating art on a high level.

Her passion for nature, flowers and old masters motivates her to continue to reflect her enthusiasm in her work as well as to keep improving in quality.

She saw the photo of the old deteriorated wall covered with bright, crisp flowers and immediately knew that she had to capture its beauty.
