Eulali Viljoen

I was born on the 24th of October 1997, in Pretoria. I completed my first year of studies at the University of Pretoria, but transferred to the University of Free State at the beginning of 2017 to continue my 2nd year of studies in B. Accounting.

I would say that my love for art started the moment I knew how to hold a pencil. I am a self-taught artist, which takes a lot of confidence and perseverance. At the age of 9, I began focusing on drawing portraits specifically – that is where my love for art ignited. It is only much later that I shifted my focus to painting and new passion was born. Emotion is the force behind most of my work, this characteristic is also well portrayed in my use of abstract expressionism.
