“As a child I was most content sitting alone in nature, doodling in my journal. Art has always been a means of communication and understanding the world to me”
Artist Landi Anina Terblanche grew up in two small coastal towns - Sedgefield, and Jeffreys Bay, South Africa. After completing high school, Landi Anina went on to study graphic design at the North West University in Potchefstroom, where she majored in illustration and multimedia. She relocated to Johannesburg, where she works as a graphic designer and illustrator, whilst making art and music in her spare time.
“I make art that expresses the meanings I find in everyday life. It’s all about the way I perceive, relate to, and read into certain interactions and events. It’s about getting stuck in a moment while the world is in a constant state of change. It’s about the realisation that nothing will ever exist in exactly the same way that it existed in that particular moment again. This realisation often makes experiences overwhelming, but it also always leads to a greater appreciation for the moment. I try to capture the feelings I attach to such moments.”
