ARABELLA CACCIA

BIOGRAPHY

ARABELLA CACCIA

Arabella was born in London and grew up in Tuscany before moving to Johannesburg where she spent her teenage years. She then went to Edinburgh University after which she lived and studied in Florence, London and New York.  She returned to South Africa in 1990 and now lives and works in Cape Town.

Arabella draws inspiration from the people, places and objects she loves. From the light where she lives and the wilderness where she goes to find peace and silence. The feeling of quiet and perhaps stillness in the work reflects the ambience she creates around her, in order to find inspiration and access her creativity.

“I firmly believe that the energy and focus put into making a work, a deep meditative concentration,produces work of honesty and integrity, with a powerful energy.  It is the process which is of utmost importance.” – Arebella Caccia
