Ilze Jansen van Rensburg is an environmental scientist by day and an artist always.

Her works consist of backgrounds of ink washes with sensitive pen drawings in the foreground, usually of trees as subjects. llze’s creations have a magical fairytale-like charm, often with a threatening element just below the surface. Ilze takes the viewer on the emotional journey of putting down roots in a new country, having recently relocated from South Africa to New Zealand, and comments on the destruction of nature by humans.
