Thandie comes from the South African Xhosa name Thandiwe meaning "loving one". Rather than painting real women, I try to paint a woman's soul. My portraits of women have human proportions but often have symbolism that suggest stylised and abstract human features instead of realistic ones as a reference to the spirits or supernatural.
