Christelle Viviers

Bio

I was born in South Africa.  

I initially trained as an occupational therapist at the University of the Free State, followed by eight years of practice, in the United Kingdom and South Africa.  

In 1997 I started drawing lessons at the Pam Anderson School of Drawing, then based in Benoni, Johannesburg, which eventually led me to enrol on the BA Fine Arts course at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, in 2010.  

1999 saw me enrolling on the Certificate Course at the Cordon Bleu School of Cooking, Linksfield, Johannesburg, which led me to practice as a freelance foodstylist from 2000 – 2003 and I completed a Diploma in Interior Decorating with  Dorothy van’t Riet, Design and Décor Consultants.

2004 – 2009 allowed me to paint and realign my life and health.

After completing the BA Fine Arts Course at Wits,  I enrolled at Central Saint Martins, London, on the MA Fine Arts course in 2014.  On completing the course in 2016,  I enrolled on the MA course, focusing on Contemporary and Asian Art at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London.
