Liekie studied Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria and was runner-up in the Sasol New Signatures competition in 1992. Since then, she has held 15 solo exhibitions and has taken part in over 100 group exhibitions. Her work is included in collections all over the world.
Liekie produces eclectic works, simultaneously recollecting the European Renaissance, African landscape and modern space age. Mystical figures set against a backdrop of quiet landscapes and planets create a holy sentiment in a holistic and Jungian sense. Working primarily in oil pastel and graphite pencil – and sometimes oil or acrylic paint – with multiple layers of varnish on board or canvas, her work resembles classic oil paintings. Single elements of collage are often added, creating an unexpected interaction between the drawn technique and photography.
