Erna is an artist who specialises in drawing and ceramic sculpture. She draws her inspiration from nature and mythology, often working in combination. Erna has had a ceramic studio for the past 30 years and has, over time, trained numerous previously unskilled men and women to sculpt and paint ceramic figures and animals. Her first love is drawing and she manages to juggle her time in both disciplines. Her work is currently on display in The Art Gallery and in Hornbill Gallery, both in Hermanus.
