Irma De Waal

Irma de Waal completed her BA Fine Arts Degree at the University of Stellenbosch in 1975, majoring in the Art of painting and the History of Art. I see myself as part of Africa and therefor share the rhythm and the pulse of the people as well as the warmth and vibrancy of the colors that is so unique to this continent.

My source of inspiration reflects in the magnitude of the outstretched landscapes of our country-from the abandoned farmhouses in the Free State to the whitewashed fisherman’s cottages all along the West Coast. I love to paint the humbling magic of the Karoo “dorpies” as well as the colorful houses of the Malay Quarter in the Cape. I like to capture the atmosphere and feeling of each of these beautiful places of our country.

I use oil paint on high quality canvas and apply the paint with bold brush strokes and palette knives.

The style of my work is modern and colorful and I try to highlight a positive mood and energy in each artwork.
