Cloudia is a Johannesburg-based printmaker and practicing artist who holds an M Tech in Fine Art from the University of Johannesburg (UJ). She worked for many years as a tutor and printmaking mentor at UJ, as well as at the community printmaking centre Artist Proof Studio in Newtown Johannesburg. In 2013 she opened her own professional printmaking space, Chocolate Ink Studio. Here her printmaking skills include screenprinting, monotype, monoprint, relief printing and intaglio, all of which she uses in her own art practice.
Cloudia is committed to ecology. She creates mainly small-scale images of the simple living beings around us – insects, birds, small wild creatures – rendering them as carefully-depicted individuals to show their significance in the environment.
