About "Liesel (God's Garden)"

Liesel is a self-portrait and part of my God's Garden Series. In this specific piece - the Protea symbolizes my love for my home country and the rose hints to my European Ancestors (mixture of Dutch, French, German, and Scottish). However although I have European ancestors, it doesn't make me European. Just as Indian South Africans are already different to their ancestors. South Africa has a strong influence in the way I speak, what I eat and even the music that I listen to and I believe that if we all sit around a table many South Africans would realize that we are not as different as we think. We have more things that can unite us, if we choose to focus on the positive elements.

About Liesel

Liesel Wessels

I am a Fine Artist, based in Free State, South Africa. I specialize in realistic drawings and paintings of People, with a subtle Christian Narrative. My preferred mediums are Graphite Pencils, Soft Pastels, and Oil Paint. I work mostly from photographs, but love to do life studies when I get the opportunity.

My personal work deals with self-believe, and identity, especially regarding my daily battle as a Christian to realign myself to God's word. It is also about God's values in contrast to the World's.

I have art collectors all over South Africa, as well as overseas. In addition, I have created a wide variety of custom-made portrait commissions for customers, working mainly from photographs.
