South African Artist, Kristie van Zyl
Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Kristie did classical ballet from the age of six; this inspired her for many years and formed the basis of her art career today. Throughout the years she was able to experience the world of the arts intimately. Kristie also went to dance for The South African Ballet Academy. During this time she learned a lot about self expression and it had a direct influence on her work. Kristie was a student of South African Artist Marie Vermeulen-Breedt.
