Idalet painted on blank canvasses with no preparatory drawings, projections or prints. Idalet was a prolific painter with an inexhaustible creative talent.
From 1998 to 2002 Idalet portrayed people from many different cultures. Her artwork was passionate, playful, rich, exotic, decorative, colourful and exuded an inner peace and unity of spirit. She was influenced by Klimmt, Gaugain, Matisse, Diego Rivera and the Pre-Raphaelite Movement. She combined the spiritual and fantasy worlds with medieval shapes and symbols and uses mainly acrylic paint with oil glazes and wax finishes. Her paintings radiated peace and joy with the self and nature; were honest, open and at time naive.
During 2002 she was selected to represent South Africa in Cologne, Germany, and from 2003 to 2006 her work was mostly African-inspired and exported to Germany, Russia, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and Egypt. Idalet exhibited across Germany, opening the season of the flagship stores of Lambert Home.
Idalet produced approximately 600 paintings and her hands were bearing the brunt of it. It could also have been the first symptoms of her blood thickening causing eventually her tragic death. Due to her aching hands she stopped creating fine art and moved towards abstract art were she could tilt the canvas so that the paint could roll over the surface. During 2007, she delivered abstract art to the corporate market in Johannesburg.
During the last months of her life, Idalet created modern art. She also painted two adjacent gates of 4 m x 2.2 m and 5 m x 2.2 m. She complained that her legs were hurting. As a family we thought that the inclination of the driveway to the gate caused this, tragically it was the last symptoms she experienced before her fatal pulmonary embolism on 7 June 2008.
