Marisa’s bright and beautiful Art
I met Marisa du Toit for the first time in March of this year, while she was painting at Alice Art Gallery in Ruimsig, Roodepoort, Johannesburg.
I’ve previously been a very big fan of her Art, but the opportunity to meet her was super exciting, so my hubby and my son Wiantjie and I went the Saturday morning….and was I pleasantly surprised! With some very arty people, you sometimes feel out of place, almost not Arty enough yourself…..but with Marisa, it was as if I’ve just come across an old friend, with a relaxing and beautiful soul. It was like meeting someone for the first time, only to get a feeling that you’ve known them forever.
She puts you at ease, and so does her artwork. It’s whimsical, colourful, and soulful. Each piece has meaning, purpose…….a goal to find the perfect owner, which would be connected to it for life!
Her work is playful and fun and extremely creative……and she’s got a unique way of portraying her thought and dreams in a way that can’t be mistaken for anybody else’s work!
Marisa came from a very artistic background, being a dancer…..and surrounded by a whole family of performers. She’s had some major successes with her career, and most of all in her family life, having married her High School sweetheart, Conrad, and having a beautiful baby girl!
But with all her past accolades, the things she’s accomplished…..all of that pales in comparison to what lies ahead for her and her family in the future!
She will be one of those artists that is going to leave a mark where ever she goes, and make an impression on our souls like a small heart shaped stamp would do with a piece of parchment.
Marisa, from me and my family, we wish you so much joy, blessings and unmatched success for your future! Your art is unmistaken, none in comparison……..and you should be very proud!
Please go and have a look at Marisa’s work…..believe me, she does not disappoint! I should be so lucky as to own one of her paintings or illustrations one day………!
Happy days to allMietjie
