My favourite part of being a South African artist is the support of the local creative community. We meet each other at markets, exhibitions or sometimes just through good old Instagram. Most of the creatives that I meet are women, which make it even more special. I am so proud of the fiercely talented women in South Africa that have forged their own career paths in the international art industry. It is certainly not always an easy path but through hard work and perseverance it can be a beautifully rewarding career.
