acrylic and ink on paper, sign. and dat. "MH 2013" right bottom, glazed / framed Marna Hattingh graduated at the University of Stellenbosch in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a post-graduate honours degree in illustration. While focusing on illustrating books, and winning awards for her work in this field, Hattingh also consistently produced paintings for group exhibitions, never losing sight of the art world. Over the years, her fine art work has developed into a highly unique and sought-after style, strongly influenced by her experience as an illustrator, blending wry humour and social comment into playful palettes with a serious undertone. Her work shows influences from her African homeland, especially in the choice of colours. She draws her inspiration from everyday life in Cape Town. She works in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
