Artist Hermien van der Merwe is fascinated by Cape fynbos plants. Living at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town, Hermien is embraced by inspiration for her work.

“To me, the essence of art is in seeing. With my eyes, I see the beauty of colours, textures and shapes in nature and I replicate this in paint and ink onto my surface. With my heart, I see deeper – and this, too, I blend into my work. My hope is that you would see my art with your eyes and that it would speak to your heart.” – Hermien van der Merwe –
