My name is Teboho Sindisiwe Mathenjwa and I am 31year old. I reside in Nelspruit (South Africa) in a small town called Karino. My interest in art started when I was six. When I was in primary school, my parents took me to art classes and enrolled me in an art high school. I later studied textile design and explored many new art design techniques.
My artwork pieces are the result of acrylic resin art pours – which she discovered and fell in love with early last year.
I had explored different techniques but never found one that truly suited me until then. The idea of being able to create sea-like landscapes and marble effects intrigued me. The process is unpredictable because resin has a spontaneous flow but can somehow also be manipulated in the form of splashes and wave-like lines.
I have been creating resin decor art since, from seascapes to customised marble- effect clocks and cakes stands.
I recently entered the National Innibos Craft Awards 2020 and have been chosen as one of the sixty shortlisted nominees that will be showcased on an online exhibition on the 26 th of June 2020. I entered the National Innibos Craft Awards 2020 because I believe in sharing the evolution of craft. The message I would love to give people is that craft can be relevant to time and any space.
