Marlise le Roux completed her B-Proc law degree at Rand Afrikaans University in Johannesburg, but the artist in her overpowered the lawyer. Now, several years on, combining equal measures of hard work and passion, she has grown into a formidable artist in her own right. She was already creating her own paintings in her mother’s studio from as early as age five, where she took her inspiration from the bright kaleidoscope and lurid brush strokes of her mother’s art. (Her mother is the renowned artist Isabel le Roux) In fact, from those early days of childish painting, Marlise had inadvertently set the stage for a colourful career as a future professional artist.
