A Soulful Journey through Art

Santie Cronje is a multi disciplinary Artist based in rural South Waikato. She creates Original works of Art using Paint and Photography to share stories of life and our place in this World. 

"The seeds of creativity was planted early on in my life. I am blessed with creative parents, a strong will and a curious mind that has seen my interest in the Arts grow into the business it is today.

From small beginnings and childhood drawings to owning my own Gallery, I can't imagine a life without Art."

A beautiful Gallery to share my Art

Deciduus & Santie

Artful Living promoting New Zealand Made

Established in 2018, Santie and her partner Shane created a beautiful space in an old historic building in Tirau. Deciduus & Santie, showcases a Collection of Santie's work, Shane's Indoor Plants and the works of a small invited team of Artists and Makers from around New Zealand celebrating the beauty of our Country and honouring handmade.

Original Paintings

Emotive, Quiet and Peaceful

'From whimsical, more illustrative renditions to recent abstracted landscapes; my work continues to evolve, running alongside my life journey. If there is an Artwork you wish to know more about, please get in touch. Every piece tells a story'.

A traveller at heart Santie's work reflects her past and current life journeys. Working mainly in acrylics on canvas, she creates her original paintings in a soft colour palette often with a shade of blue or turquoise present.

Fine Art Prints

Limited Editions - Museum Grade Quality

Santie Cronje Fine Art Prints are created from her original paintings. The process starts with photographing her original works, then proofing and sizing the images in collaboration with professional fine art printer Lee-Ann Hamilton.

Each print goes through this process before an initial print proof is created to get the edition 'print ready'. The final step is to hand sign and number each print before carefully packaging the work at her Gallery in Tirau. Editions vary from 1 to 150, although most of Santie's prints after 2019 are editioned under 50.

All prints are either Limited Editions or Time Released and the quality is exeptional and printed on 100% cotton rag museum grade paper. The colour life of these prints will exceed 70 plus years in the right conditions. A beautiful art investment to be enjoyed for many years.

Photo Art

Creative Photography and Digital Overlays

Santie's Photo Art images are often one-off photographic prints or very low editions. Santie captures moments in life whilst going for walks in the bush or at the seaside. These images are digitally enhanced or overlayed with painted images and sometimes finished with colour pencils or pastels. 

All photographic prints are exclusively sold through her gallery as the collection is too small to stock represented galleries. The quality is exeptional with cotton rag museum grade paper used. The colour life of these exclusive prints will exceed 70 plus years in the right conditions. A beautiful art investment to be enjoyed for many years.
