Art & Life

Art and Creativity has been around me for as long as I can remember. Little did I know that my love for Biology drawings in Highschool would lead to a professional artistic career spanning over 30 years.


From whimsical, more illustrative renditions to more recent abstracted landscapes, my work is forever changing; running alongside my life journey.


Here you can browse a selection of Limited Edtion Prints reproduced from my Original Paintings or One-Off Photo Art Prints created with a mix of my digital photos and painted backgrounds.

Deciduus & Santie

Original Paintings

Emotive, Quiet and Peaceful

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.

"Sometimes we go to places and other times we go within. Travelling through life is a mixture of physical and spirital adventures. The people we meet along the way and how our surroundings influence what we do, inspire my creations" - Santie Cronje

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.
