Dorothy du Plessis

Dorothy du Plessis qualified in Textile Design and Technology which provided an excellent background for her special interest in mosaic art. After 13 years of running her own textile design business she started working in mosaics on a full time basis as principal designer for Mosaic Arts in Pretoria, dealing with everything from the design to the installation of commissioned mosaics. She now runs her own studio in Kenton-on-Sea, teaching, showcasing her current mosaic projects and working on a wide range of commissions.

Dorothy loves colour, line, texture and composition. She finds inspiration and peace in walking on the beach or in the veld, observing these elements in nature. She coordinated the publication of Quin Sculptures: Sixty years of excellence, a book documenting the work of internationally acclaimed sculptor Maureen Quin.
