South Africa mourns the death of Iconic Artist and Designer, Carrol Boyes
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Carrol, who passed away last night after a brief illness.
Carrol Boyes was the founder, creator and CEO of The Carrol Boyes (Pty) Ltd retailer in Cape Town. She was an iconic South African artist and designer and her creativity has deftly crafted a coveted and high-end product range of upmarket home and lifestyle items.
Carrol demonstrated the very highest values in her business; integrity, playful perspectives and passion for design and for her staff. Her personal touch will inspire and stay with us always.
Carrol enriched many lives in multiple ways. She instilled an unconventional approach to business and her message to her staff was ‘’I have had such fun with you and you have enriched my life greatly. Please remember that we do things differently here. Never be ordinary – be extraordinary and throw in a bit of naughtiness every now and then and keep laughing. Never lose your sense of humour.’’
Carrol will be remembered for her love, her story and her quirky creativity. Carrol leaves our nation with a legacy of excellence, unity, empowerment and pioneering functional art. She will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with her family at this very sad time.
