Fourie, Coral

 

Coral Fourie qualified as an art and English teacher and taught at various schools for 28 years. Her artistic output during those years was geared mainly towards educational visual aids. Fifteen years ago she took advantage of a retrenchment offer in order to devote more time to art.

For five years Fourie was secretary of the local branch of WSSA, followed by two years as branch chairman. She am an Associate member of the national Watercolour Society of SA.

Watercolour painting was her first love and for many years she painted watercolours exclusively. Currently, painting mostly in oils and acrylics.

Fourie love drawing and paints a wide variety of subject matter, from portraits, still life paintings and flowers to landscapes and particularly enjoy painting people and domestic animals. Her aim is to capture the effects of light – hoping to produce fresh, spontaneous looking paintings with expressive lines and brushstrokes.

She exhibited with three art groups and in a number of art galleries in and around Durban, a committee member of the North Coast Art Group and belong to KZNSA Gallery and the Highway Art Group. Examples of my paintings are in private collections in SA, Australia, Canada and in the UK.
