Welcome to the website of international award-winning South African Artist Karyn Wiggill
, specialising in
Her distinctly recognisable pencil work is extremely detailed and finely reproduces
reflections of captured
, candid portraiture
, and extraordinarily expressive
poured into each work of art gives it an almost haunting but beautiful life of its own
that separates it from others and places it in a genre somewhere in
between representational and photorealism
Although Karyn Wiggill
also produces larger works, she spends most of her time on
traditional (accredited) Miniatures
. Her signature finely detailed work also features in her Botanical Watercolours
. Karyn Wiggill's artworks in Oil
show a more impressionistic technique
while still managing to capture that living essence that allows you transcend canvas and experience the moment
