After freelancing in illustration for about ten years in England, I have built up a wide range of different styles which range from figurative drawing to a more stylised graphic interpretation
of a client's brief - and have produced illustration for Advertising, Editorial, Publishing and Design.
At high school I remember spending my whole biology class just sketching other pupils - it seemed a good idea at the time, until I got caught out by the teacher who proceeded to rip out the pages of my book leaving the limp outer cover.
After high school I studied at Cape Technicon, Graphic Design, 2nd major Illustration. This lead me into children's book Illustration, a series of 4 educational books for Shuter and Shooter, and card illustration.
A fellow Tech graduate opened his own Ad Agency and invited me to join. My job there entailed visualisation and marker presentation work from initial idea through to final application. After 3 years I went freelance, specialising in marker presentation work, storyboards for film companies and ad agencies.
Other applications include; airbrushed exclusive clothing range, make-up and styling, themed props, murals and character design. I am a versatile artist and work in many mediums and applications (including body paint and ename). My speciality is my drawing ability, my ability to interpret a visual idea and my speed of execution.
My name is Karen Vermeulen and I'm a freelance illustrator living and working in Cape Town.
I like working with watercolours, my mac or just doodling with a ball point pen. I've been drawing pictures my whole life but have only been getting paid for it for the last 8 years or so. But really I do it because I love it.
My illustrations have appeared in books, magazines, on greeting cards, t-shirts, mugs, chocolates as well as on numerous wedding invites. Some of my clients include Lapa publishers, Fairlady magazine, Woolworths and Stuff for Africa.
When I'm not busy drawing or painting I work in advertising as a freelance art-director.
