Priscilla Meintjes

Priscilla sometimes paints under the name “Cilla Meintjes”.  The love of Art is a family affair, her father’s nephew being Johannes Meintjes whose work is greatly sought after.  Like her uncle she also enjoys writing and painting. She started sketching when she was 17 years old.  Loved it and later years started experimenting with Pastels, then Acrylics, Encaustic Art, Water colour, and ended up with the love of painting in Oils.  Her father always encouraged her to pursue the arts as he was a musician.  However, she preferred to paint and to create.  She found her niche while Painting predominantly in oils and she believes that it is a forgiving medium. She is known to say that working with oils is very much like life itself, you make mistakes but can always rectify it by asking forgiveness, it is called grace.

Her art has sold to collectors in America, Australia, Canada, Ireland and locally in South Africa.  Always interested and willing to do work on commission for clients.

Recently she has established herself on the Western Cape and as a trained counsellor has combined her love of art with healing and now offer Wellness Therapy through Art. Feel free to contact her for your counselling needs. Due to COVID-19 she now assists with Online and remote Zoom sessions. She can be contacted through this site or www.artistsretreat.co.za
