For the past 25 years ILSEs artwork has evolved & grown with her. Through passion, hard work & endless dedication she has become one of the respected & well-known artists in the genre of realistic wildlife. Her meticulous detail & realistic rendering of Africas beautiful wildlife, has ensured that her work is sought after by admirers & collectors worldwide.

Until very recently ILSE only sold her original artworks, but a change is in the air!
