Marzelle has been drawing since she was little, drawing on everything, everywhere. “I love to capture and draw people especially their faces. I believe art should create a positive movement in this earth – life’s too short to be anything but happy. When people see my art I would love them to feel a sense of joy, hope, love and kindness,” she said.
“I am really passionate about my art and I’m pushing it, as I want to become a full-time artist.”
This year Marzelle will be focusing only on pursuing her art career in different forms; drawing, painting, creating, photography and ceramics, as art is her passion. You can follow her on Instagram: @zelsartjourney or on Facebook: Marzelle de Beer’s Art Journey
Bianca (18) from St Mike’s specialises in portraits, as people’s faces fascinate her.
“I’ve always loved doing creative things and drawings since I was little. I guess I carried on with that love and I love it as it can be a way to escape, a way to send a message or make awareness of a certain aspect,” she said.
Bianca added that she draws inspiration from the people around her and also how they make her feel.
She will not be pursuing a career in art but has rather chosen to study hospitality management.
