Location: Ballito, South Africa
Hello, my name is Solett. I am a South African artist, based in the Zulu Kingdom of KwaZulu Natal. I work as a full time artist from my home based studio in Ballito.
I have had a pretty colourful professional career starting as a classical musician, crossing over into IT and Project Management. But painting was always a constant and in 2015 I jumped off the corporate ladder to focus on my art.
I am completely self-taught! I discovered my oil painting abilities during my student years and have not stopped painting since.
My style is “uncomplicated realism”. My paintings are thematically quite varied, as are my interests and inspirations. As much as I don’t like labels, the bulk of my paintings can be categorised as Portraits, with my background as a violinist and love for music also flowing through my work. Another stunning part of my portfolio is Wildlife, coming from spending so many years in the African bush!
