Doing what comes naturally, is the phrase that comes to mind when talking about Ilze du Preez, owner and curator of The Showroom Art Gallery. Ilze’s entrepreneurial spirit has led her to many endeavors in the past but her current passion of bringing fine art to people, started as a student hobby. At a tender 19 years of age, Ilze sold no less than 8 paintings at her first exhibition.

After the bug bit, she worked with many talented artists as well as a few well-known Art Galleries, where experience was added to her passion, to make a winning combination.

Family life is an important theme in Ilze’s life. After the birth of their first boy, Ilze started her own framing business, which allowed her to be involved with two things  she loves – art and family! This framing concern was sold, but the new owner still works hand-in-hand with the Showroom to make sure that beautiful art is framed in quality frames.

Now, many years later, Ilze is still committed to bringing beauty to ordinary people as well as art investors and the corporate world etc. Pursuing in dealing in art as a career, it seemed to have found and followed this business woman rather than it being a conscious choice!

If you are looking for a passionate, experienced and a reputable art dealer, The Showroom Art Gallery is there to assist you, every step of the way.
