LYNETTE TEN KROODEN (1955) – Lynette ten Krooden is often categorised as a “landscape artist.” This narrow definition, of this well-travelled and scholarly artist, is perhaps too restrictive.

Lynette’s works penetrate deeper than mere representations of landscape and become vehicles for her exploration of symbols and spiritual dwellings with a metaphysical quality. Twenty-five years of travel and research into fossil life, ancient civilisations, their petroglyphs and cultures has resulted in Lynette forming a universal mythology which she utilizes as a forum for discourse.

ROBBIN TOY (1956) – My love for art began at a very young age. Most of my time was spent painting in water colour, until I discovered oil paint. I’m now learning the techniques that the old masters used.

I feel humbled as to how far I have come and how much I still have to learn, as they have spent years and years perfecting their skill. Under the guidance of Stefan Rossouw, I am slowly learning the techniques that was used by them.
