About Nombeko

Nombeko was born and bred in the former Transkei, Eastern Cape in a small village called Tsomo. She grew up on a farm in the Kei River valley. As a child she never had a chance of owning a book or a pencil. In school she wrote on a slate or on a flat stone if the slate was broken. She used to scribble on stones, gaalboom and aloe plants. Nombeko's art passion started at a very young age when she and her cousins used to draw each other on stones and gaalboom. In her primary and high school she didn't do art as a subject. She did art as a subject when she enrolled for her diploma in Education at the college. Her love for art led her to be a Foundation Phase Art teacher. She started writing books for young kids that were later published by Oxford University Press. Nombeko isn't just an artist, but a creative writer as well each piece of her art comes with a short story. At the college Nombeko won several intercollege art competitions.
It never came to my mind at any stage of my life that one scribble would touch a heart in a way that art does. From the beginning to the end of each piece it does something to me. To me making art is a strongest feeling that I can't explain to anyone. My life as a child hasn't been smooth. Rough texture and visible lines in my work depict the feelings I have about my past. My work is a story of my life and those around me that I use to communicate my feelings, showing inventiveness and self- expression. I use my art to build bridges between myself and the rest of humanity; reuniting and recording fragments of thought, feelings, and memories; and saying things that I can't express in any other way. I have secrets just like any other human being but my art is the revelation of my life.
