A trip through the Overberg region of the Western Cape leaves you in no doubt as to why this area attracts more than it’s fair share of artists. Indeed it is said that there are ‘more artists per capita in Hermanus than anywhere else in South Africa’. Whilst I can’t substantiate this statement I can leave it to artists like Lize van der Walt to demonstrate the quality of the artists that live here. From her home in Northcliff she produces amazing contemporary landscapes and seascapes inspired by the stunning scenery around her. Her paintings of Grotto Beach are beautiful inspired by the colourful skies and the ever-changing coastline.
