Elbè Art & Design
“Elbè Venter, an illustrator and self-taught surface pattern designer, finds her creative sanctuary in Pretoria, South Africa. Inspired by her nation's diverse charm, she paints stories through intricate patterns and art. Her artistic style is marked by meticulous line work, layered textures, and vibrant colour palettes.
She believes that the sincerity of one's artistic journey, consistent practice, and an inherent love for the creative process will inevitably shine through in the final masterpiece. Authenticity, this remains her guiding principle.
The collection is an echo of her own children’s make-belief worlds … a fantastical tapestry of bugs, mushrooms, flowers, fairies, and butterflies - bright celebrations of the enchanting landscapes of a child’s mind, where the imaginary spirit is most at home.”
