Meet Our Local Family

Here you can meet the true geniuses and brave spirits who courageously forge ahead regardless of any difficulty or hurdles.


Yvette Boonzaier

Cape Town-based primary school teacher Yvette Boonzaier is a self-taught artist. Her depictions of faces and objects are not only unique but manage to tell a story all on their own.


Second generation artist RD hadn’t painted in 32 years when a friend gave him a canvas and told him to paint. Now, he follows a long-lost passion, painting to challenge himself and push creative boundaries.

Aisha Adams

Aaisha’s unconventional style lends inspiration from her upbringing and showcases her passion for the arts.
Hailing from the Cape Flats, this mother of 4 casts aside the more traditional mediums of art, opting instead to work with glue to create unique works of art.

Shameema Arnold

Art has been a part of Shameema’s life for as long as this Cape Town-based artist can remember. Qualified in art and design and with work experience in graphic design, it didn’t take long for Shameema to fall in love with calligraphy.


Sulene grew up in Stellenbosch, never giving much thought to her art as she got married and raised a family. One day, a friend bought her an art lesson for her birthday, and from that moment on, Sulene was hooked on canvas and acrylic painting.


Hot Stuff

Based in Claremont, Hot Stuff offers a range of Pakistani cuisine, as well as gatsbys, cip-based meals, grilled foods, and more.


Hon serves up a selection of authentic Asian cuisine, including fresh sushi creations, noodles, duck dishes, dumplings, and whole baked fish.


EMSQD Tie Dye Apparel
