Este originates from Pretoria, South Africa, and now lives in Berkshire England with a background in ceramic and textile design. This is evident with the abundance of stylised & colourful, still life, landscape and floral forms depicted within her range of designs. Her style represents a more abstract feel, but there is a strong sense of familiarity brought to the forefront of the audience’s mind by the use naturalistic shapes and themes.
Este’s paintings are also inspired by themes such as travel, nature, dreams, seasons, sentiments and intricate thoughts, as well as a use of forms present in everyday surroundings. The layering of colours and nature inspired forms, including simplified plant forms & her trademark floral depictions insure a freshness and vibrant energy throughout her work.
