Pippa Birkett is based in Durban North and studied fine art at Stellenbosch university, She paints part time while teaching ceramics and giving art lessons from her home studio. Pippa loves painting vibrant florals and recently indigenous succulent gardens into her portfolio. She likes to paint things that are recognizable to the eye and yet when you look closely you can see the evidence of textured paint, brushstrokes and layers of colours.
Pippa’s works are personal and thus unique, she loves hearing back from people who get such pleasure in having one of her original pieces hanging in their home.
Carol is a member of several art groups and regularly participate in their exhibitions. Her work is sought after locally and across the globe.
“I feel more in touch with my works when I paint from my own reference photos, which are preferably landscapes and seascapes. Mozambiquan palm trees and Transkei beaches with cows are some of my favourite source materials.”
