Louisa Gerryts

Louisa Gerryts is an illustrator, painter and designer who works from her home in Riebeek Kasteel.

While lecturing in the design department at the then Cape Technicon, she began illustrating for various publications.

Her diverse array of work includes botanical and ornithological paintings and drawings where she finds inspiration in her own thriving indigenous garden. Her portfolio also includes illustrated maps, educational, editorial and children’s books Illustrations where she uses various styles, always retaining her characteristic quirkiness.

Louisa started exploring and developing digital collage that evolved out of a lengthy creative process inspired by satellite images as seen on Google Earth, manipulating and using it in corporation with her own experiences and man’s relationship with nature and the world.

Recently, she started painting on canvas using the Riebeek Valley as her inspiration.
