Ans Pieterse is from George but more towards a small little place called Grootbrak River.
In her own words:
To paint is to open my eyes to the wonderment and beauty of creation. I listen to the sounds in whispering trees and see the brightness of colour all around me and lose myself in the magnificence and Godliness of creation.
I find awesome beauty in the simplicity of everyday life and love to show my viewer just that... and if this is noticed it would be the truth. By the Grace of God we live on this planet, in the form of man. We exude and experience colour and spread our scent and smell, the scents of other living beings, and smells in nature. After a short while we move from here into other loveliness. If my viewer can see, smell and experience this beauty, my mission here on earth is fulfilled.
