Pieter van der Westhuizen discovered at a very young age that "the world I found myself in was not a comfortable one... At around the age of four I decided that this life was not for me. I began creating another world for myself - in pictures..."

Pieter van der Westhuizen, was born in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1931. He studied art at Unisa under Sakkie Eloff, Leo Theron, Robert Hodgins and others.
