This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist, September 2003.

Antoine de Villiers (Antoinette) was born in 1977 in Potchefstroom, a small town in the dry, northern part of South Africa. Here she developed her natural artistic skills from a very early age and subsequently studied graphic and web design at Potchefstroom University. From 1996 she devoted herself to full-time painting and ran a studio in Stellenbosch. Here her career got underway exhibiting in the Western Cape area. Soon her works traveled through South Africa and during the following years, she was actively involved in several solo as well as joint art exhibitions countrywide.

The end of 2000 saw Antoine traveling to the British Isles where her works in oil started gaining recognition in galleries around Sussex. Soon she was invited to take part in joint exhibitions in London, and solo in Notting Hill. Early 2003, Antoine
relocated to the United States where she is presently working on exciting new challenges.

Antoine's art is an introspectional investigation of her life and thought. Her works have ranged in style from the realistic themes to abstract works, as the stages of her life unfold itself. She finds her inspiration in her close environment, hence her love for travel, which in turn explains her wide spectrum of styles. Her great passion though, lies within expressionistic art and as one reporter aptly noted, utilizing mainly the emotionality of the female as a theme.

Her work embraces the psychological relation of the various facets of a person
within oneself, thus she prefers constructing emotional complexity within a solo subject. She doesn't believe in imposing rhetoric and the spoken word upon her art and thinks it should rather be experienced. Painting has become her lifeline during trying times when the difference between the real world and abstract interpretation becomes exceedingly blurry. She expresses her analysis of life through her art
and is enriched by all and everything around her.
