Skilly’s sketches

You know we like to support local … and when local = ubertalented … well, what’s not to love?

Mike Schilperoort, more affectionately known as Skilly, spent his days putting his architectural design degree to good use – designing, building and project managing the construction of new homes in various parts of South Africa. But it was his passion for flying – mostly to the Okavango Delta – that led him to his love of the bush and for sketching, drawing and painting watercolours.

These desirable and sought-after paintings (check them out on Instagram @skilly.art) are now available as originals, or as high quality prints on canvas. The print options are huge … from large canvases to hang on the wall to little versions to use as gift cards.

Prices range from R50 for the little cards to around R2500 for the largest print; contact him for prices of originals. Details: 078-657-7827 or mikeschilperoort.com
