International Award-Winning Artist Karyn Wiggill
Welcome to the website of international award-winning South African Artist Karyn Wiggill, specialising in pencil, watercolour, oil and miniatures.

Her distinctly recognisable pencil work is extremely detailed and finely reproduces reflections of captured daily moments, candid portraiture, wildlife, and extraordinarily expressive landscapes.

The detail 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.
