Meet Tina de Beer, resident artist in Clarens

Written by Lizanne Esplin

“I was inspired to paint by Noel Brettell; an exceptionally talented and committed teacher in rural Mashonaland (Rhodesia.)
My painting style lies between realism and impressionism as dictated by the subject. Mood, light and atmosphere are the elements that inspire me with colour playing a crucial part in the creation of the painting.
I believe that one successfully paints the subjects you’re truly connected to. Where there’s passion and feeling a painting comes to life and speaks for itself without lengthy debate and analyses of its qualities.
Being an artist is where I want to be.”
Tina has exhibited all over South Africa as well as in Dresden, Germany. She has an open gallery in Clarens and offers art classes, both by prior arrangement
