Eugenie Marais / Life round here I
Eugenie Marais was born in the Western Cape and after completing a Graphic Design degree at the University of the North-West in 1995 decided to pursue a fine art career instead. She moved to Pretoria where she now lives and has been a full-time artist since 2003.
With her design and fine art background, Marais creates sketches, prints, collages and oil paintings that evoke feelings of alienation, loneliness, nostalgia and calmness. Her muted colour palette and choice of subject matter explores escapism and has a dreamy quality. Her body of work includes landscapes, cityscapes, still-lives and figurative work.
