this is my story...

i'm ettiene (ezra), nice to meet you

I am a 24 year old South African Artist who created Ezra Art to showcase myself as an artist and too bring the joy of imagination to the world. I have over 7 years of experience, all self taught. In 2015 a dear friend urged me on and I added art as an additional subject at school. 

Art was never intended to be the career choice, I planned on studying Conservation, did I suck at Maths!... I was put in the decision of what could be a second career option.

I knew I had to do something, so I stepped back, reflected and realized art is something I’m good at, and with that in mind I studied Graphic Design, landed a job as a web developer and never looked back.

After a long time of delicate considiration, I decided to become a fulltime artist. Therefore I departed from my web developing career to pursue art full time. 

I've had the oppurtunity to have worked with multiple individuals from across the world and various types of businesses from HR, Coaching to Short Term Insurance Companies.
