Barbara Siedle, the Durban-born artist of our wild life illustrations, has established herself as one of our foremost watercolour artists, specialising in the field of wildlife.
Barbara’s love of the bush and interest in environmental issues takes her on many journeys throughout Southern Africa to capture subject matter for her work.
These illustrations can be seen in many a game lodge, as they are not only decorative but informative too.
Many visitors, having been on a trip to a game reserve, purchase them as a memento of their visit, or a memory of their favourite animal.
Barbara attended the Michaelis School of Art, UCT and then the Munich Academy of Fine Art in Germany where she studied painting and sculpture under Prof. Kirchner.
In 2014, Barbara published a book “Breathe the Dust”, which is a personal journal of her art career and travels into some of the remotest parts of Southern Africa.
