Symbolist Artist Santie Cronje paints full time from her studio in Cambridge. Originally from South Africa, she studied Art at school and completed a Bachelors of Arts at the University of Pretoria in 1994.
Her preferred medium is Acrylics, with its quick drying times and low toxicity. She uses thin layers and washes to create different moods and light effects.
A natural Storyteller, Santie’s narrative work has been described as “a delicate simplicity and elegance, which touches the childlike side of the heart”.
A love of the ocean, traveling, nature; and an earthy colour palette inspire her creations.
Santie is represented by a few selected galleries and boutique stores and her work is held in private collections in New Zealand and abroad.
