My name is Celia van Niekerk, I am a professional, South African Fine Artist.
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember and hold a Diploma in Art & Design. I used to be a Professional Photographer and photography studio owner for over 14 years, but due to a shoulder problem I had to hang up my camera for a while. So, I decided to pursue my career in Art. I regard myself to be very blessed to be able to lead such a joyous and creative life. I am thankful to the Lord for giving me the talents and means to do so and I am striving to make it my purpose to spread the joy through my art.
I work mainly in oil colour, watercolour and coloured pencils. I specialize in figurative paintings of children, oil portrait paintings and Christian Inspirational Art. I have recently added watercolour portrait illustrations to my art venure too.
You are most welcome to browse through my website to learn more about me and my paintings. I do have a few original pieces in stock, I am available for commissions and custom orders too.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you require any information or would like to commission your own Celia van Niekerk Original!
