South African Artist, Mariaan Kotze
Being the daughter of well-known South African artist, Kobus Kotze and his wife Joe, also an artist, Mariaan grew up with a passion for the art world. Her brother Floris and his wife are the owners of Kotze Art Gallery in Bloemfontein, and sister Hanlie Kotze is also a successful artist in her own right.
Mariaan received her art diploma from the Free State Technicon in 1990, majoring in sculpture.
Inspired by stories and elements, Mariaan’s work comes alive through symbolism, each painting a delightful journey.
Her paintings found their way to boardrooms, waiting rooms, private- and corporate collections around the world, are exhibited in numerous galleries.
