Kristi Marie Pretorius

 My artwork is largely inspired by wildlife photography and documents my passion through detailed watercolour portraits of the animal kingdom, great and small.

The organic blend of water colours as my medium provides my paintings with a strong physical presence. That presence is enhanced by my skill at rendering images into lifelike figures as well as manipulating features which often creates a sense of playfulness.

My resulting works vary from realism to a comical form which instinctively appeals to all.
