Santie de Bruyn is a creative who is fascinated by learning. Experimenting with decorating techniques has led to the development of this body of work. The work is made by painting layers and layers of underglazes to realise the image. Beauty can often be found by combining various images and paying special attention to darkness and light in the illustrations. For her, beauty lies in the contrast of life, and can often be seen in the playful theme of the illustrations found in her work.
