Aleta Armstrong

“I have drawn and painted my whole life and am lucky enough to also earn a living from it. I find that I am at my most creative when working alongside talented and enthusiastic artists – inspiring each other is important.”

Aleta Armstrong was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1961. She lives and works in Ezulwini, Swaziland. During his initial artistic period he moved with his parents from Finland to Swaziland. She married Peter Armstrong and the two of them founded the Yebo Art Gallery in Lobamba, Swaziland. Her works have interwoven at their centre African and North European symbolism, and explore many techniques, especially silk screen printing. She has exhibited in Copenhagen (Denmark) since 1984, and also in Swaziland in various places.
