Larissa Matthews

Larissa is a B Comm Law graduate who studied at Stellenbosch and UJ. After law she was drawn to pursue her creative side. She spent months in India creating and designing jewellery and was moved by the raw beauty, simplicity and spirituality of this country and its people. Her creative interest and passion for the human body and it’s movement led her to pursue studies in anatomy, Pilates and Yoga. This fuels her sculpting style, depicted in her works of movement, body and form. Larissa volunteers at a national counselling service and she has a deep empathy for the human condition. She draws from her experiences as a counsellor, finding a way for people to extract emotion when experiencing a sculpture. She is happiest when emersed in creating art or in nature where she feels a deep connection to that which is meaningful.
