Artist’s Biography: Charlene (Keys) Potgieter

I am a self-taught artist residing in Port Elizabeth Eastern Cape.  I work any many mediums including acrylic painting, sculpture, fabric, paper, markers, ink and more! I am always looking for something new to experiment with.

Because I have no formal training, I struggled for the longest time to call myself an artist.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Every artist was first an amateur”

I am still an amateur in many ways but an artist in many others.

I am the owner of a creative small business called Kreatief My Lief. This is where I get to live out my other passion and most favourite part of my art. Teaching .Again ranging from Acrylic painting, to mixed media on canvas,, metal embossing , flower making …and many more. I love transforming someone from “I have no artistic bone in my body!” to “Oh my word! I made that!”

I was chosen as a finalist in a National Competition (DSTV – Kyknet) That was such an honour and an amazing experience. Though nerve wrecking to be creative while a camera is always watching. And the harsh realization that the camera really does add 10kg. (!)

I ended in 5th place and I was proud of this achievement.

I have recently started experimenting with digital design and that is something I will be doing/learning more of in the future. I dream of my own designs on decoupage paper etc.

Watch this space! 🙂
