About Karen

Karen Steffano

There is sometimes a quirky sense of humour to my work, I like creating scenarios you would not see in real life that let you wonder about them. I like to show there is beauty in the mundane and the everyday. I am more likely to portray a humble pig than a proud lion, a simple rock rather than a grand vista. Every painting has a story and has meant something to me.

My family and I immigrated to South Africa from the UK in the 70’s, where we have lived ever since. I love South Africa and I love living here and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Growing up here, art became my favourite subject at school, I won the art prize one year and I dreamed of becoming a famous artist.
I went on to study Fine Art at Wits University, majoring in Painting.
After graduating, despite having two works chosen for the end of year student exhibition and also winning a merit award in a national competition, I told myself that art and making money don’t go together, so I pursued a career in other things and dabbled in art for a long, long time. After years of excuses and promises that I would one day go back to art, I finally found myself back where I belong.
I now take myself seriously as an artist and want to share my art with the world.

Achievements
1988 - Fine arts Degree University of the Witwatersrand majoring in painting.
1987 - Got two works chosen for the annual student exhibition in the Getrude Posel Gallery.
1987 - Received a merit award New Signatures exhibition in Pretoria.
After this I left the art world – let’s call it low self esteem and a belief that artists live impoverished lives.
All the work on here was done in the last few months except for one. All my early work is in private collections except for three which I refused to part with.
