Helena Gerber

Helena Gerber – Owner and in house artist at Art on Queen, Art Studio and Gallery, Knysna.
Studied Art, majoring in Ceramics, at the University of Stellenbosch from 1979 to 1983.
For a number of years she ventured into business and created a company called Potterplace in Jeffreys Bay.
After selling the business, herself and her husband, moved to Knysna, where she started actively pursuing her artistic talents again. The influence of teaching art to pupils at various schools, is seen in her naïve style of painting. The idea of no stress about realism and “painting the perfect picture” is freeing to her and the reason why her work is playful and fun..She believes that the eyes are the windows to the soul, therefor painting portraits of women with soulful eyes is a typical trait of her work.
She attended several workshops with fellow South African artists like Hennie Niemann Senior, Phillip Badenhorst and Itai Vangani etc. Her work is displayed at Art on Queen.
The artist is a co-owner of the company Pretti Cool Gifts, also located in Knysna. Helena is the graphic designer for these gifting items.
