BRIDGET HENECK

 

 

Bridget Heneck, a Cape Town, South Africa-based contemporary artist, applies her multi-disciplinary background and talents to inject unique and innovative elements into her broad range of work.

Africa’s light, vast open expanses and abundance of biodiverse plants and animals provide continual inspiration for Bridget. This is reflected in her precise representation in botanical drawings, large wildlife oil paintings and the decorative elements that enhance her ceramic pieces.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Bridget earned a BA in Fine Art, majoring in Jewellery Design at Stellenbosch University. She went on to become a lecturer at Ruth Prowse Art School in Cape Town and taught jewellery making in the United States at the New Jersey School for Visual Arts. Her numerous awards for jewellery design include recognition from The American Gold Council and De Beers.

While living in Westfield, New Jersey from 1985-2006 she focused on decorative and mural painting. It was after she returned with her family to Cape Town that she discovered her love of working at the pottery wheel, becoming a ceramicist in residence at Art in the Forest in Cape Town for six years. Currently working from her own studio spaces in Constantia and Kommetjie, she creatively integrates jewellery designs with ceramics to produce one-of-a-kind pieces.

Bridget’s expansive work in various media has been exhibited at art shows and galleries in South Africa. Her pottery and paintings grace homes and galleries around the world.

 

According to Bridget, “My purpose is to inspire others to become more intensely aware of the natural world around them. Through my work, I hope to open people’s eyes and sweep them up into the beauty and fragility of our endangered species while bringing a sense of peace into their lives.”
