Loving Each Other. Oil on board 30 x 21cm. Framed.
Tina Swart is a 20th Century South African Artist known for her love of people and animals which she portrays in her paintings.
She was born in Pongola situated in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. In 1995 she started to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.
“Ever since I can remember a blank sheet of paper inspired me, something that I can use to express myself. I see my talent as a gift because I am mainly self-taught. Hence the ‘Gratiam Domini’ that I sign below my name on my paintings. I was 11 years of age when I did my first portrait in pencil”, says Tina.
She now resides in Cape Town, where she plans to stay to her true calling – that of being an artist.
