    Within South Africa we courier your artwork to your door - the shipping cost will show at the checkout.

    When shipping art internationally, two primary options are commonly considered: crated and rolled. Crating involves securely packaging the artwork in a custom-built crate, providing maximum protection against physical damage but often resulting in higher shipping costs due to size and weight.
    On the other hand, rolling art involves taking stretched paintings off the frame, carefully wrapping the artwork and placing it in a protective tube. This method is more cost-effective and suitable for flexible pieces.
    Choosing between crating and rolling depends on the specific artwork's size, fragility, and budget, as well as the destination's shipping requirements and regulations.

    We will be in touch regarding the best options for you.

    “African Queen” is a portrait that celebrates the strength, resilience, and regal beauty of African women. Representing the continent’s rich and diverse cultures, the woman wears a Cape Malayan cap adorned with gold jewelry, emphasizing her wealth and royalty.

    This artwork embodies the powerful duality of womanhood: the need to appear composed and powerful while working hard to inspire and show love and kindness behind the scenes. Through her poised smile and determined gaze, “African Queen” aims to inspire pride, determination, and the relentless pursuit of success.

    Jaret Loggenberg

    Jaret Loggenberg

    Born in 1994 and growing up on a farm, outside Parys in South Africa, Jaret Loggenberg discovered her passion for art and culture at the young age of 10. In 2010 she sold her first painting which enabled her to attend an art tour in Europe. After she matriculated her father advised her to get a BCom degree as he felt that she wouldn’t make a living from art.

    Jaret has always been in awe about the human body and anatomy and after many hours of research in the library, she discovered her love for human figures. As a figure artist, Jaret’s subject matter is woman figures.

    For her works, she makes use of a stroke technique which she developed herself during the years of painting. She prefers oil as a medium of choice and she strives to improve her craft and therefore still attends various art workshops. “It’s not about being the best – it’s about being better than you were yesterday.”

    Jaret Loggenberg’s paintings reflect the natural warmth, emotions, and inner beauty of a true female. She tries to make her art unique by expressing herself with bold strokes and natural colours.

    The reason, why oil on canvas is her preferred medium, is because it gives a very definite message and portrays a specific emotion, however, it’s open-ended in the sense that every viewer can make their own connection with the artwork.

    Jaret believes that it doesn’t matter what your background is or where you come from, all women over the globe experience the same discrimination, and stereotypes which all women can relate to. As art is a universal language, with her works she reaches many women around the globe and hopefully inspires them to rise. “It doesn’t matter what has happened to us in the past, we should rise and take back life. We are not victims, but victors.”

    Jaret Loggenberg is a registered South African Artist represented by The Traveling Art Gallery and Artsy. Among others, she exhibited in various shows in South Africa and Europe. As an artist as well as her art is an integral part of The Travelling Art Gallery community. This is evident from the fact that she has been featured in the following exhibitions of The Travelling Art Gallery:
