About Aviva Maree Artist

Aviva Maree is a South African who works in oils on linen. She lends a timeless quality to her depiction of ordinary people and their everyday activities. She prefers to paint women as she not only has a natural flair for painting the fabric of their clothes, but also admires the way women proudly work in contented ways. Aviva invites the viewer to engage with her pictures using their own imagination to complete the stories with their personal experiences of life. 

As the owner of De Volkshuijs, Aviva is inspired by people who make a living from the soil and sea of the Overberg.
