Jade Klara, our Doyenne in Design

jadeklara.co.za

Jade Klara is an artist, illustrator and designer working from her studio in Woodstock. With her warm personality and charming allure, it’s virtually impossible not to like this creative soul. Jade’s work is characterised by a strong and feminine style, with a play on whimsical imagery and narrative. 

Certainly no stranger to the design world, Jade is forging her own path and making a name for herself along the way. She has exhibited both internationally and locally, appearing in numerous group shows at Salon 91, and is currently working toward a show with Dani Loureiro next year.

Never one to shy away from an opportunity to get to know emerging designers and artists on a personal level, we gave Jade five questions and asked her to sketch her answers for us.
