Anthea Delmotte

Anthea Delmotte was born in Windoek, Nambia and grew up with strong connection to the outdoors and the farms of her grandparents. Her subject matter and illustrative scenes often depict a dry quietness of the expanse of the Karoo. Her family surrounded her with craft making and her father’s interest in sketching from a young age, until in the early 1990s, she moved to the Western Cape where she still lives. Her understanding of art comes from intuitive approach and a passion for creating textures and form on a two-dimensional plane. Delmotte has exhibited in 14 of her own solo shows and has a Saatchi Art profile, showcasing her work. Delmotte is a prolific local artist whose attention to detail and light give her a unique characteristic and recognisable style.
