More Artwork by Marinda Combrinck
Born in Jhb, 1972 Marinda matriculated at the Pretoria Pro Arte School of Art after which she studied Fine Art at the Pretoria Technicon under lecturers such as Dianne Victor.
After studying, the Pre-Raphaelite Gallery was opened where she started honing her own unique style as a fine artist. Commissions for both original & commercial paintings for private clients, local and abroad followed and created a great variety in painting styles and content, for eg Hotels and Casinos such as Emperors Palace and Monte Casino, JHB. In collaboration with fellow artists, this period included Set Painting for PACT and The Civic Theatre for pantomime productions such as Annie & Aladdin.
Since 2004 Marinda has been painting from her own Studio & Gallery in the Little Karoo town of Calitzdorp. Here she indulges her passion for landscapes & portraiture.
‘The Glamour Girls’ were at first created as a commission for the coffee shop, Coffee @ Die Handelshuis next to her Studio & Gallery in Calitzdorp and grew into a ‘Pin-up’ series with the inspiration of Trent Read.
Marinda is currently working on her next exhibition subject: ‘Natural Litter- Roadkill’ for Knysna Fine Arts in 2012. She was also invited for group exhibition at Casa Labia, opening 6 December 2011, ‘In Bloom II”
