Throughout De Villiers' career, her art has retained an element of the dark, comical and narrative. De Villiers works in a mode of portrait illustration across various mediums, including acrylics, oil, ink, watercolor, sculpture, and printmaking. Each medium imparts its own distinctive features but the cast of naively-rendered figures remains constant, exerting their tragicomic pathos and a prevailing sense of doom.
