Renier Oosthuizen

I was born in the early 60’s with the love for art in all it’s forms.

My favourite pastime as a child used to be sketching and painting. My arty and inquisitive mind led me to create works from anything I could lay my hands on. After Art School I joined the S.A. Air Force as a chef. During this time I discovered my ability for composing music and playing the piano. The next 20 years of my life were spent on fashion designing and interior decorating. Thus began my next journey which was steered towards creating beautiful artwork with form, line and texture.

After deciding to settle in the tranquil village of Haenertsburg on the escarpment in Limpopo, where the beauty of nature also enhanced my passion for art, I decided to seriously consider my paint brushes.

Inspiration in abundance is drawn from the beautiful surroundings in which I am privileged to live.

My ability to capture the essence of Africa by painting ethnic pots with a modern edge helped me to establish my position in the Art world.

I have moved into a new dimension where I use colour and form more expressively and freely – also moving from acrylic to oils. Expressionism is my current forte.

My aim is to create artwork that brings joy to whom so ever owns it.
