Jumarie From The Heart’s goal is to bring uniquely beautiful art to all corners of the world. We want to share Jumarie’s artworks in a fresh way to a broader audience. Our brand name, “Jumarie From The Heart” reflects the artist’s passion and exuberance that she puts into every piece of art she paints.
MEET THE ARTIST
To know Jumarie is to LOVE her. She is a South African artist living in Namibia who has been painting professionally since 2011.
She believes that the Lord God created each one of us with great potential, talents and passion. For her, that is how each painting starts, where talent and passion meet on canvas.
She has developed a signature style that makes her work instantly recognizable.
Jumarie transmits an authentic abundance feeling thought her artwork being inspired by the beautiful nature surrounding her in Namibia and South Africa. Read more about Jumarie in our Blog.
“Jumarie From The Heart” originally started in May 2020 as a collaboration between artist Jumarie du Toit, Cindy Liebenberg who handled the business side of the company, and Jackie Visser, who was the designer and artistic “Jill-of-all-Trades”. (Of course, our loving husbands have jumped onto the train for the ride as well.) Our aim was simply to create beautiful and durable products and bring what the French call “je ne sais quoi” (an indefinable, elusive quality, especially a pleasing one) to any space or occasion.
Lots of things have happened in the first two years of our business which we are extremely thankful for and proud of. We started selling our stunning products on Takealot, Amazon and Etsy to name a few – in South Africa, The United States of America, and in the United Arab Emirates. We are also exhibiting Jumarie’s original art in Spain.
Our gorgeous products were on display in the South African Pavilion for 6 months during the Dubai Expo 2021/2022 and being offered on the Proudly South African and RSA Made platforms.
We were very blessed to have been invited to take part in the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs sponsored and organized by the US Missions to the United Arab Emirates and the New York University (NYU) of Abu Dhabi from September to December 2021.
We entered into a new era with Jumarie From The Heart in the second quarter of 2022! Cindy Liebenberg and her husband Johan Liebenberg has fully taken over ownership of Jumarie From The Heart, as Jackie Visser stepped out due to family responsibilities. Cindy and Johan also permanently relocated back to South Africa in April 2022 following 22+ years abroad. With Jumarie’s gifted art still the foundation of all our products, we are expanding into the digital realm and training sphere. We are very excited about this new season and what the LORD has for us to learn!
But, above all, we create with the goal of bringing glory to our Lord God.
