Artist Profile


Born Eastern Cape, South Africa.

I am from Mooiplaas in the village called Mizini at the Eastern Cape. I grew up staying with my mother, grandmother and my brother in the village.

Let’s hear from Andiswa:

Why do you do what you do?
I love beadwork I learnt it from my grandmother and mother. Most important I can be able put food on the table to feed my family.

What’s your favourite artwork?
My favourite artwork is mostly making beaded animals. I also would like to make traditional beaded bracelets, necklaces and dresses that are decorated with beads.

What do you like about your work?
I like my work, because it keeps me busy during the day while the kids are at school. I also like looking at different magazines, so I can come up with new patterns to bead.
