About The Artist
Saniki Wessels is based in the beautiful coastal town of Betty's Bay in the Western Cape. She was born in Ermelo in the Mpumalanga province, South Africa.
She received diplomas in Diagnostic Radiography and Radiation Therapy at the University of Pretoria. She met her husband Louis in Pretoria and together they have three adult daughters. After having lived in Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, where she pursued her art studies, they later settled in Somerset West, and currently in Betty's Bay in the Western Cape.
Saniki has been painting oil paintings since she can remember and took her easel, oil paints and brushes everywhere with her into nature. She could often be seen in the midst of a Cosmos flower field in the Eastern Freestate Mountains, whilst her young daughters played peacefully around her. She is inspired by nature and it reflects in a lot of her paintings in mountain, sea and flower scenes.
Saniki previously had her own gallery in Somerset West. Now she works from her studio in Betty's Bay where she specialises in oil paintings. She enjoys the creative stimulation of joining other artists and attends regular art classes inBetty's Bay . Saniki's oil paintings have been exhibited all over South Africa in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Somerset West, and most recently in the Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.
This gallery displays Saniki's portfolio, mainly from recent years. Feel free to contact her at
