Our collection of prints, magnets, beach bags, cosmetic bags, cards, signed prints, gift tags, placemats and scatter cushions is a celebration of African wildlife. Made in South Africa, our ranges, seasonally new and different, always feature the Big 5 along with the hippo and wild dog so often overlooked. Future ranges will include a wider variety of African wildlife. Each product in the whimsical family has been hand crafted and is exclusive to us.

Whimsical Collection is a proudly South African company creating ‘African’ gifts featuring designs painted by Dezireë Smith.

Since 2013, the Whimsical Collection team has grown steadily. Our products are primarily handmade in our warehouse by a dedicated team of craftsmen and women from the local community, and each product features one of Dezireë’s Whimsical designs – elevating everyday objects to collectable art status. Wildlife and conservation remain key focus areas for the team, and we donate to various charities supporting our indigenous animals and conservation efforts in South Africa. Adding to our collections and our product offering regularly means you will always find something new to be excited about in the Whimsical Collection! The perfect gift with collectable quality awaits!




Dezireë was born in 1983 in Vereening in Gauteng, South Africa. She pursued art from an early age and exhibited a precocious talent, which was fostered both at school and at home. Dezireë’s passion for capturing the spirits of Africa on canvas first took flight when she was a child. Having won a national art competition, she was awarded the opportunity to undertake an extensive tour of the Eastern Cape to attend and participate in various art workshops, where she truly fell in love with her country, its animals and its people. 

It was after moving to Fish Hoek, in Cape Town, that Dezireë began working on what would become her premier Whimsical Collection – one of African wildlife flying over the savannah with hot air balloons. And so, a brand was born.
