Maria Magdalena Oosthuizen, fondly referred to as the “artist of the people”, has travelled the world to finally settle in the tranquil town of Mossel Bay.
Starting small in 2006, in a house that doubled as her gallery, she is now one of South Africa’s most renowned artists
specialising in the painting of children and producing touching faith-inspired works.
Although not one seeking out the spotlight, she has appeared on various TV programmes, has featured in magazines and received international attention.
At the end of 2012 Maria introduced her very popular interior and gift collections. Since then the collections have grown immensly and keeps expanding.
Born in Paarl, Maria was raised in Gauteng and has lived everywhere from Durbanville, in the Cape Winelands, to
Wimbeldon in Southwest London. She is married to Francois Oosthuizen, who is also her business partner in running their gallery in Mossel Bay. Blessed with three beautiful children, she believes her highest calling in life is her relationship with God, her husband, her children and with all people.
Her life and work is a testimony of how God uses our talents to inspire and bring people into His Kingkom, if only we are willing to follow His call.
