Born in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, Phulani Liebenberg is a self-taught artist who has always expressed herself atristically throuh painting, drawing or photography.
Working in mainly oil painting at present, Liebenberg has focused on portriature and emotion. Using strong contrasting colours, her work draws attention to the eyes in particular. Liebenberg uses various sources for facial features and there are no actual models used. "I have always loved how Africa celebrated bright rich colours and how beautifully they were used to represent and tell a story about a specific culture and way of life"
