Renowned wildlife and portrait photographer Veronica Coetzer and her daughter Monique Blofield, are opening The Photographer Design Studio.
The Studio is set to open in the new Menlyn Park Shopping Centre on 24 November 2016.
Combining over 40 years of experience and passion, Veronica and Monique’s new store will offer art, design and photography services, while also hosting workshops and exhibitions in the beautiful new space.
Throughout their lives, Veronica and Monique have faced numerous hurdles. Survivors of abuse and serious illness, the pair have used art and photography to heal the wounds of the past.
“After becoming very ill, I wasn’t able to work at all for three years,” explains Veronica. “I felt that I had lost everything as photography and art are a very important part of my being and are my way of expressing my emotions, my hopes, my fears; they really are my mechanisms of healing.”
She says the new studio will provide new and returning customers with a plethora of exciting services. “We can finally offer our clients not only the best studio and environmental portraits on canvas, but a vast range of new exciting products printed on mediums such as wood, Plexiglas, glass and steel.”
Along with this, the studio will also serve as a gallery space for Veronica’s artworks. Her photographic collages, which have been exhibited internationally, will be on rotational display, and customers can commission works of their own.
