All About Me

1 a Shop originals low res.jpg

All images on offer were designed and painted by myself, Karin Malan. I’m a self-taught artist. I lived in Botswana for 23 years but moved to George, South Africa in 2020. I’ve had numerous exhibitions and my work has been sold in Botswana, South Africa, Australia, America and the UK. 

I am passionate about sharing my art and open my doors to students on a weekly basis.

What started out as a hobby has become an obsession and a life choice.  I am inspired by movement in my subject matter and the organic flow in my painting medium.  I started out as a watercolour artist and loved the push and pull that the different pigments created. It was whilst allowing the oil paints to flow in a similar way that I discovered my painting style. Most paintings start with a pouring.

I'm a member of SCAVA (South Cape Art and Visual Art Associaation) and regularly participate in exhibitions.

I enjoy giving art classes in my studio on a weekly basis, giving public demonstrations and also have online courses for sale.

I love children's books and have done some illustration for educational material as well as design a stamp range in conjunction with Botswana Philatelic Society.
