Specializing in African Wildlife.

ILSE de Villiers has a passion to portray African wildlife through her exceptional God-given talent. With paintbrush, acrylic and canvass the creation is caught up in such detail that it leaves the onlooker speechless.

Ilse de Villiers was born in Durban (South Africa) and grew up in the picturesque, treelined city of Pietermaritzburg in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. She currently lives in the district of Tzaneen (Limpopo Province) surrounded by the most beautiful green hills and valleys.

This is also not far from the Kruger National Park, where wildlife thrives in their natural habitat. Her paintwork began as an inspiration of her inherent passion to draw the beauty of God's creation closer to man. Also to portray animals, so true to life, that the onlooker is left spellbound.

Through the use of acrylic on canvas, she creates a new world by skillfully harmonizing wild animals with their natural habitat.

The meticulous detail of her paintwork is unique to her style. She specializes particularly in painting the "Big Five" as well as other African wildlife with zebras being a personal favorite. Paintings can also be commisioned.

Her website (http://www.ilsewildlife.co.za) is a showcase of her works of art which can be found hanging in the foyers of corporate headquarters all over the globe and in homes of proud owners who invested in ILSE's art. ILSE only does and sells original paintings and no prints are made of any of these paintings. Each one is absolutely unique.

Support for Conservation:
In 2009 ILSE donated a painting to help raise funds for the "Silvery Gibbon project". This fundraiser was aimed at accumalating funds to help these endangered primates & is run from Perth zoo in Australia.

In 2010 ILSE donated a painting to help raise funds for Rhino-concervation. This painting was auctioned of during a black-tie dinner that was held by the Lowveld hunters society.
