René Snyman is a young professional artist living and working in Johannesburg, South Africa. She was recently in the United States painting local scenes.

Growing up on a Kalahari farm near Upington, her close interaction with nature shaped her remarkable powers of intimate observation. Since discovering her drawing talent as a young child, René dedicated herself to working hard and developing her skills.

René describes the essence of her artwork as intimacy: "this would really be the one word to describe my paintings – intimacy with the landscape, figures and the animals I portray. Everything that has a story to tell and has the element of life captures my attention."
