Growing up in Graskop, Riette felt inspired by her majestic surroundings. After school she completed an Interior decorating course and soon she was drawn to the art of painting to express her creativeness better. She started with pencil portraits but once she was introduced to a brush and paint 5 years ago, there was no turning back. She has explored images, concepts and feeling that have guided her work down new paths and have shown her creative realms. She has persisted, mastered her craft and found her own unique voice to display her level of confidence and stands behind her work and integrity of her art.
