Most artists draw inspiration from their surroundings. It is no wonder then that the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Stanford provide the perfect palette for some of the Overberg’s best loved artists. From opulent oils to the finest line drawings, ceramics, sculpture, wrought iron work, mixed media pieces and shack art. The Art Route takes you into the studios of these artists, where you can talk to them about their work and get a little insight into their creative process. Private viewings may be booked by contacting the artists or alternatively see the list of open days which will be held on a number of weekends throughout the year.

    Sara Abbott

    I have loved painting and in particular, drawing, since I was very young while being brought up on a farm together with my sister, in Kenya. Loved the outdoors, riding, fishing, taking photographs and being surrounded by animals. That is probably why I find them as a subject for my art more fun than still life!

    Nora Newton

    Nora Newton is an Impressionist artist. South Africa’s wondrous natural environment is the inspiration for Nora Newton’s evocative and sensitively rendered canvasses. She is especially drawn to the horizontal waterscapes of Churchhaven on the Cape West Coast’s Langebaan lagoon, the solitary expanses of the arid Karoo and the deserted beaches of the Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast.
