    South African Artist Veronica Prins

    I chanced upon this amazingly gifted South African painter. She doesn’t market her work, but she sells her art. I thought it was time I took her out of the closet and shared her with YOU. These are the works of VERONICA PRINS. Remember the name. I know you won’t have any trouble remembering her art. If you’re interested, please send me an email –  jill@jillwallace.com – or shoot me a note via the contact page on this website, and I will put you in touch with Veronica. There is nothing in this for me other than a great pride in a talented fellow South African. ~~~~~
