Lioda Conrad is a Cape Town based graphically trained Fine Artist with a love for Africa where she was born. The bush, the people and the animals contained within, are reflected clearly in her work. She has very elegant lines and a very personal bold style. Her work is both sensitive and freely expressive of the beauty found in Africa. Her work includes highly stylised contemporary portraits in split contemporary colours as well as incredible charcoal, pastel and conte crayon portraits both realistic but with a certain quality of elegance of line with sophisticated and expert handling of a very hard medium to master. She had been described as an upcoming "force" with substantial value by some SA art masters who are calling it an important body of work.
