Biography

Liebet Jooste is a South African artist living and working in a farm cottage just outside of Paternoster on the West Coast Peninsula. Born in Pretoria in 1983, she grew up there and obtained a BA Fine Arts degree from the University of Pretoria in 2006. Jooste moved to the Western Cape at the end of 2017 and lived and worked in Betty's Bay for the last year. This new environment had a significant influence on her work as she is currently creating very detailed works in watercolour, gouache and ink on paper inspired by the coast of the Western Cape.
