Rouve de Flamingh is a well known local artist who has been involved in the art world for almost 30 years. Rouve’s oil paintings are abstract works painted in rich, vibrant and textured colours, which are conveyed onto canvas using brushes, oil bars and palette knives. These artworks are a process that unfolds as the art is created, with no clear plan upfront, and pieces are only titled upon completion. One constant is the generous use of colour, texture and careful design, which evolves according to her mood. Rouve loves the open-endedness of abstract art, which allows the meaning and feeling behind an artwork to be in the eye of the beholder.These visual wonders are sold at art exhibitions and on Rouve's website. Private viewings can be arranged by appointment only.

Rouvé de Flamingh spent a great deal of her youth doing portrait sketches of her classmates at school and after studying Occupational Therapy decided it was time to live out her passion and proceeded to study for her BA in Fine Art at UNISA.
Rouvé’s career in the art world formally began when she and her husband relocated from Middelburg to Gansbaai, where they ran a popular restaurant and art gallery for a few years. Now, years later, Rouvé has relaxed into her role as a full-time artist and creates her masterpieces in her own time. She enjoys regular interaction with other artists and likes to attend workshops, which she feels encourages her to grow as a person and as an artist. Rouve proudly states that her husband is her greatest fan and continually encourages her to achieve her best.
