"If you want to know everything about me, just look at my paintings, it's all there."
Art is an integral part of Isabel's existence and her work manifests itself in almost every facet of her life."
Isabel's work is contemporary and expressionistic. The colours used are vibrant and courageous and reflect her passion for painting and life. The themes are influenced directly by that which she experiences or creates out of an emotional involvement with the subjects.
Isabel le Roux is a highly gifted and skilled professional South African artist. She is prolific in her art and has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions since 1974, nationally and internationally. Her art works are displayed in numerous top Art Galleries, and sought after by Private Art Connoisseurs.
Isabel, a dynamic South African Expressionist, depicts the South African landscape and life style masterfully.
A first impression of her art is vibrancy. The courageous use of colour adds to the expressionistic quality of emotion and feeling. She paints life and creates her paintings in the journey of her own life. She is well known for her typical South African scenes, especially those from the Cape, but her travels abroad bring a new dimension to her work.
She has been honoured with a sabbatical for three months in the "Cite International Des Artes' in Paris. As artist, Isabel takes pride in her work and believes that continual growth and development is the key to success.
