I’m an illustrator living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. I work solo as well as collaboratively with 3 of my ridiculously talented studio-mates. We lurk in a black walled studio in Woodstock where we work, play and sometimes procrastinate. It’s all sorts of fun.
BIO / Jade Klara graduated with a B.A from UCT (2003) and a B.A from Vega (2007). Her work is characterised by a strong and feminine style as she plays with whimsical imagery and narrative.
