About Nola

Nola Muller - Artist“After all the years with brush in hand and numerous solo exhibitions, I am in a very comfortable space with all my past achievements.

I‘ve painted nature’s gifts from the Kalahari to the Himalayas. I’ve delved into Africa’s dry landscapes…having camped and taken in the atmosphere of the bush. I‘ve had fun with ‘’familiar places’’ that include the mountains and sea around our Cape Peninsula. These subjects will always be an inspiration as they are part of my everyday playground.

I now explore the ‘’gems’’ of the earth and challenge myself with crystals, agates and all things mineral. Still working with realism but seen almost as abstraction.

Familiar Places

These familiar places are an endless inspiration for me, and they're found around our magnificent Cape Peninsula at the tip of Africa. From the mountains to the sea and even my award winning garden. I am blessed to enjoy them all and naturally convey their beauty in my work. There will always be some watercolours and drawings as well as oils in this subject matter.

Trance Dance Series

I delight in using the Baobabs as a backdrop in portraying the life of the San people. They who roamed freely long ago following the migrations of the African animals. I thank them for describing their encounters and learn from their stories that are still found beautifully painted on rock overhangs throughout the African subcontinent. These large canvasses are still a work in progress as, like the Baobabs, they will live on.

Gems

I’ve been a passionate collector of these gifts from the earth all my life, often finding my own on the banks of the Orange River or around rocky outcrops whilst camping in the Northern Cape, Namibia and Botswana. I am Loving the process of letting them come alive on canvas with texture and glazing. There is abstraction displayed by their exacting lines and thrills when I achieve a crystal that pops. Feast on this new series and you are welcome to comment and share.
