South African Artist, Mia Brand
During the foundation phase of her graphic design studies at NMMU (PET), Mia studied under renowned artist Thys Cilliers. Here the seeds were sown of her passion for colour, texture and contrast in painting. Completing her studies in 2001, she entered the media industry where she focussed primarily on layout, web-design and multimedia presentations. In 2004 she elected to go freelance, with a view to spending more time on her painting (and raising a family).
