I'm Grethe, from a sleepy hollow of a town way down there in sunny South Africa...
Although I've been drawing just about my whole life, I studied a three-year degree course in graphic design and photography and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design in 2008.
Currently, I work as a professional photographer and image retoucher as well as a professional illustrator on a freelance basis, and on contract for a local publisher.
My illustration clients include Benedic Books and Media, the South African Air Force's National Display Team- The Silver Falcons, and the Albatross Disaster Fund.
I love the colours orange, pink, red, purple, white, blue, yellow and silver, TEA, cats, ducks, aviation (especially military- fighter jets <3) sleeping late, making music and indulging in awesome/nerdery...
