About Ilse Kleyn

Since my hands could hold a pencil, I started to draw on anything I could find. I am the third generation on my mother's side who shows artistic talent.
After high school, I started a career in the South African Police Service as a Police artist, drawing wanted criminals, stolen goods, designing pamphlets, posters, ext. My background as an identikit artist laid the foundation for my exquisite style.
I only started to paint with acrylic late in the 1990's, doing small projects only for family and friends. Soon I discovered the magic of painting in oil and never looked back.
After a career of 16 years in the South African Police Service, I pursued my dream and started painting full time in 2006.

I am intrigued with the human form, mind and spirit. I strife to capture the human being's character. To portray the essence of the soul, the human being's frustration, pride, strength, love, wisdom and passion.
My work is evolving in a style of my own, precise, full of detail, rich with color and depth. It is growing as I am growing. It is my passion to paint time-less paintings with a message to all generations. Not just a peace of art to decorate a room.
