I just want to be an honest artist. About my life, my work and my growth as an artist and human being.
As a kid, living in a rural part of the country South Africa, my life was all about painting with my dad, scrabbling 'weird' images, spending time in nature and swimming in the Crocodile River! My life revolved around exploring my surroundings and being creative.
I spend most of my time painting and connecting to the world I live in right now. My life is about art. I find inspiration in music, people, animals, nature...
My technical skills develop through the love of art, working with multiple mediums, painting constantly, reading about the subject. My mother was an Art school graduate and that was very helpful!
When I look at animals, I see perfection. But we live in a not so perfect world. That contrast and vulnerability are beautiful to me. It gives me the contrast I need to appreciate the perfection. My goal as an artist is to paint that contrast so that the viewer sees the beauty as I see it.
I hope that you can see my authenticity and emotions. My humble wish is that you can connect with my work...and that you have pride and happiness from owning an original Ella Botha.
