Magrikie was born and raised in South Africa. In 2000 she left her beloved Homeland to pursue her Creative Calling and to attend Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California. This led to ambitious career opportunities with award-winning Advertising Agencies and Studios.

After many years as Art Director and Retoucher in the Advertising Industry, she started pouring her artistic energy back into her childhood passion of decorating surfaces. Today she has an abundant array of independent illustration projects, creating art for any and all surfaces, including books, magazines, packaging, greeting cards, stationery, giftware, textiles, wall décor, drinkware, ceramics, murals and more. In 2018 she had the privilege and honor of having her illustrations featured on the the first ever Scratch-&-Sniff Stamps for the United States Postal Service.

Magrikie spends her time between California & South Africa. With a heart for Art, People, Nature, Creativity and her Creator, Magrikie felt the stir and answered the Call to serve her Community, using Art as a tool to inspire others. She has partnered with Aleph Surf in South Africa and Lovewater Foundation in California, faciliating Theraputic Art Workshops & Community Mural Projects with At-Risk Youth. Magrikie is currently working at LIV Village in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. LIV provides holistic, residential care for orphaned and vulnerable children.
