From an early age, Maritz recognized her affinity for art. Memories of the past appear frequently in her work and take the viewer on a journey of her adventures growing up in South Africa. Influenced by discovery of her mother’s paints stashed her childhood home and encouraged by a passionately eccentric art teacher in high school, she expressed raw talent always striving to paint varied subjects and with sometime experimental materials. Maritz’s art was gracefully balanced with her family and day job — but she was fueled by friend and professional abstract artist Natasha Barnes and she persisted by creating in the evenings until her career took off. Her expressive, colorful work represents a sense of freedom, layering paint with loose brushstrokes and harmoniously bold tones, portraying the world’s beauty through her unique vision.
She moved from South Africa to New Zealand in 2007 and is continually inspired by the wild natural landscape and changing weather of her new home. She paints, runs her art studio, cares for her son Zak and husband, and continues to live her dream providing artwork worldwide. Providing more than design or decoration, her art enriches living and work spaces for all.
