Jeandré  Marinier South African Artist – From Abstract Art To Realism

: +27606768652 

I was born and raised in Pretoria. My family moved down to the Cape in 1981. I studied Fine Art at the Cape Technikon . My principal subject was Printing methods such as etching, lithography and screen printing. I also did photography and ceramics and obtained my diploma in 1985.

I moved to France where I married a Frenchman, and worked as a PA in an Multinational Industrial Company. I enjoyed time with my husband and kids.

Then in 2010 came the wake up call. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and three operations later, I realized that I had been given a second chance in life and decided to do what I have always wanted to do. . .  That is, CREATE and learn oil paint techniques.

On the road to recovery,  I took Art Therapy Classes at first, then Oil Painting lessons for two and a half years, followed by oil and ink techniques. After 27 years in France, I moved back to Hermanus, South Africa. I brought my paintings, canvases etc. and I paint every day.

‘We say that life is short, you can have your life changed that day, everything can be destroyed in a second. Do not waste time. Have a bucket list and just do it’.

On arrival in Hermanus:

– I joined the Hermanus Art Circle in July 2013
– Offered weekly Art classes and Workshops for adults
– Designed the New Harbour Wall Painting done with Hermanus Art school students
– Designed for the Art Shop Court Yard painting (in Mitchell street) done with Hermanus Art school students
– Teaching art (practical), with Vivienne Mitchley (Theory) at the Hermanus Youth Art Centre from Grade 7 to Grade 12
– In collaboration with three artists we opened The Art Gallery
