About

Andrea du Plessis

 
Bio
I remember loving to draw ever since I was a tiny bambino! My favourite part about going to restaurants as a kid was getting a colouring in picture and a cup with crayons. Today I’m making it my career, and loving it!
Originally from Pretoria, my love for art-making, travel and learning has been a major driving force. 
After doing my fare share of gypsy-style living I’m beginning to settle in Cape Town where I’m pursuing my dream of working as a freelance artist, illustrator and designer.
Read more about the augmented reality children’s book, called “Stories To Life – Hansel & Gretel”, in my portfolio. This project made me very excited about working as an illustrator within a team and I’m thrilled to get working on the next big thing.
