Beukes, Sandi

Sandi Beukes was born in Cape Town in 1957. She qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1983 and worked in the industry until 2000, when she became a fulltime artist.

Sandi started painting watercolours in 1984, and then moved into pastels in 1996 and acrylics in 2002.

She travels fairly frequently to Europe to visit art museums and get ideas for paintings. Particularly loves the French and Italian countryside, as well as French café life.

Her main subject matter includes landscapes, waterscapes, street scenes, dance halls, musicians, cardplayers and stylized portraits of people sitting in cafes.

She finds much inspiration in the old masters, especially from the artists living in Paris from the late 1800’s until around 1920. Favourites include Modigliani, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Utrillo, van Gogh, Cezanne, Soutine, Pissarro, Daumier and the early work of Picasso, to name but a few.
