About My Art
When I don’t have commissioned work waiting, I love painting celebrities.
I love to paint the beautiful world created for us by God. My definition of pure joy is playing with colors, shapes, textures and contrasts. I find this is also very important to think of all these elements of an artwork when painting, even though sometimes rules are meant to be broken
My Contemporary art would suit the decor of most homes and my portraits especially would be great for the entrance, lounge and even bedrooms in a family home.
Magda's Art Classes
Towards the end of 2019 I started fascilitating Let’s Paint Together events on meetup.com in the Joburg Connect group.
These events are held every second week. Read more about them (and book your spot!) here.
I guide my students with drawing skills, color pencil work, pastel work, acrylic painting and oil painting.
