OH, HELLO! Welcome to my world of images and stories! I am from the beautifully diverse South Africa and studied at Stellenbosch University. Here I obtained an MA in Visual Arts in which I explored personal storytelling, specifically in visual format. You see, this is what interests me most - stories, images, storied images and imaged stories. I am currently teaching Illustration to final year students at Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography, as well as a newly developed subject, called Discourse, which focuses on social responsible visual communication and the role images can play in our changing world. Anyone who has taught before would understand that most of one's energy and time goes into the students and so I have to be honest and admit that my stories sometimes have to simmer for months before they are put on paper. BUT! They always find their way into our world and I hope that you will enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them! All my love,
Marike
