Kim Louise Watermeyer – I’m a creative at heart. I’m passionate about painting. I generally focus on subject matter that is connected to nature, but I have been known to deviate at times.

I was born and raised in Cape Town. I have loads of inspiration on my doorstep: from craggy mountains to rolling seas and an abundance of beautiful fynbos (the smallest, yet richest floral kingdom in the world) to tickle my paint brushes and keep me very busy.

I’m recognised for my ‘masking tape’ paintings. This technique is my very own, original craft which happened by chance, while cleaning out my home studio. This process allows me to create artworks in acrylics that are extremely unique and tactile. One cannot paint ‘normally’ like this. It’s the ‘fluke’ that occurs, using masking tape, that makes my work so different and eye-catching.

My work is always happy, sometimes frivolous, sometimes naughty. It’s bright. It’s quirky, and it often puts a smile on your face.

My portfolio of work is now displayed in many homes throughout South Africa, New Zealand, United Kingdom and other European countries, China, Japan, Canada and the USA.


I do take on commissions. I can also have shipment arranged around the world. Please contact me directly by email: for more details.
