Your shop reflects your passion and soul, and you deserve every success. I can’t wait to come up to Cairns to see all the new treasures you’ve been ...

Bev & Dave – Syndey

My first impression when seeing Iefje’s paintings for the first timewas ‘wow’. I love her choice of colours and the mix of mediums she chooses for her paintings. They make for a good conversational subject as well as a visual delight. I love mine.

Chris – Cairns Coatings -, Westcourt

I had a difficult time finding the right painting to place on the feature wall of our CBD apartment because the entire apartment is painted antique yellow and we have an existing art collection that varies in style a lot. I needed something show-stopping, but not clashing. I had been looking for over three years, until I discovered Iefje’s Under Art Gallery. Thanks to her creative talent and fabulous artwork ...

Kim Crowther – Cairns

Having discovered Under Art Gallery, we are now the proud owners of four of Iefje’s original works which take pride of place in our home. These paintings exude an energy that permeates the room in a comforting way. Upon meeting Iefje, it is clear that the warmth and glow of her paintings are a true reflection of her own character and passion.
