Mernette’s life mimics her art. The two are inseparable - they move and grow together. Her purpose is driven through the need to create, to inspire, to beautify, to educate, and to bring hope.


With a BA Honours degree in Graphic Design and Illustration and a Postgraduate Teaching degree through UNISA, Mernette started an art school in 2012. In 2014 she co-founded Tone AM, where they create custom painted Cajon crate drums and up-cycle instruments into works of art. And currently, Mernette is a lecturer at Ruth Prowse School of Art in Illustration, Drawing, and Jewelry Design. In addition to this wealth of art and teaching experience, Mernette is also a full full-time artist and creative consultant in Cape Town. Painting murals is her latest love, giving her the opportunity to explore bigger spaces with new clients in new locations. Mernettes style is described as free-flowing, colourful, open, while at the same time structured, crisp, and planned.


“To quote Picasso, ‘Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.’ I want my art, and my life, to bring creativity, inspiration, beauty, education, and hope. I am excited and challenged to participate with other artists in conveying this message to the next generation” Mernette Swartz.
