Gretha Helberg is an internationally renowned oil & encaustic wax painter, printmaker and photographer. She has a BA (Art Direction) degree at PU for CHE (North West University)

"I guess I can say I enjoy to create, whether it is an oil painting or an etching, it does not really matter what I am creating, as long as I enjoy what I am doing.  I think it is the whole process of being immersed in my work while creating it, my eyes see something, my heart gets a feeling for the subject and then, the final stage, my hands make the artwork.  Life inspires me - people around me, the beauty of God's creations - I try to capture this all in my art." - Gretha Helberg

"I mainly print limited edition polymer etchings in my home-based printmaking studio and paint atmospheric seascapes and landscapes in oil on canvas."
