Silver is Gold by Santie Cronje. 

‘The art of relaxing in the great outdoors’

Freshwater fishing has been a quiet pastime I've enjoyed since first arriving in New Zealand. Not as a fisher, but instead watching as others cast their lines, relaxing beside a stream after hiking to the perfect spot.  At the heart of it, trout fishing is more about enjoying the magnificent outdoors; the smells and sounds of a river and the slowing of time… Santie Cronje

Santie Cronje-Bio

Symbolist Artist Santie Cronje paints full time from her studio in Cambridge. Originally from South Africa, she studied Art at school and completed a Bachelors of Arts at the University of Pretoria in 1994.

Santie’s preferred medium is Acrylics, with its quick drying times and low toxicity. She uses thin layers and washes to create different moods and light effects. 

Her narrative work is described as “a delicate simplicity and elegance, which touches the childlike side of the heart”

A love of the Ocean, traveling, Nature; and an earthy colour palette inspire the Artist’s creations.

Santie is currently represented by a few selected galleries and design stores and her work is held in private collections in New Zealand and abroad.
