Hougaard Winterbach is a South African artist living in Pretoria, Gauteng. He has been avid about drawing, and used it as his main mode of artistic expression for as long as he can remember. His drawings are characterised by the juxtaposition of disparate objects or themes within one drawing.
He also makes sculpture as a continuation of his jewellery making experience. His work is figurative and he sculpts in wax after which the work is cast in bronze. His bronzes are relatively small and detailed, reflecting the intimacy of jewellery design.
He studied jewellery design and sculpture and lectures in drawing and sequential art (comics) at a private art institution. He has held two solo exhibitions to date and has exhibited his drawings, jewellery and sculptures in various group exhibitions.
