Hello.  My name is Liesel Wessels.  I am a Christian Artist, based in a little city called Bloemfontein, that is situated in the heart of South Africa. I specialize in contemporary realistic portrait drawings and paintings.  I work mostly with mediums like Pencil, Charcoal, and Oil Paints.

My work deals with subject matters like self-believe, and identity, especially regarding my daily battle as a Christian to realign myself to God's word. It is also about the identity of being a child of God, in contrast to the world's view of what is perfect and normal.

I have art collectors all over South Africa, as well as overseas.  Created a wide variety of portrait commissions for customers from baby to wedding couple portraits.
