My name is Annika Bates and I’m an artist based in Pretoria, South Africa. My style of drawing requires an abundance of patience and really fine lines. My art is inspired by South Africa’s beautiful flora and I absolutely adore animals especially dogs. My own two pugs feature in my work and I feel that drawing them is a beautiful way of celebrating and remembering them. My medium of choice is ink but I also do works in color pencil. I love combining my ink drawings and functionality, so I’ve created a range of locally and thoughtfully made textiles to bring art for years of enjoyment into your homes.
If you think my aesthetic of fine line drawings would suit your branding project or even beautify your walls, then please get in touch. I’d love to do a commission for you.
