Rix Wellmann is a full-time artist living and working in Rooiels, surrounded by Fynbos and situated closely between the sea and Klein Hangklip Mountain. Wellmann's primary focus has been art since her formative years. Her artistic training included time spent at Stellenbosch University, The Foundation School of Art in Cape Town and tuition with Prof Gregory Kerr.
Visuals have always been her dominant way of communicating, using colour and mark making to express a sense of play and joy in her creations. Fascinated by the connection between humans and nature, specifically mammals, Wellmann uses the seven shared primal emotions to create visual stories. Incorporating the elements of earth, fire, air, and water, she evokes a sense of nature's energy.
Wellmann's work can be found in private collections both locally and abroad.
