About Magda de Lange

I am Magda de Lange, a South African Contemporary Artist. I love painting flowers, landscapes and portraits of people and pets.

I started creating art since the age of 10. I was bored during holidays and drew a quick line sketch of William Shatner (T.J. Hooker). When I showed the sketch to my mother, she immediately recognized him and started encouraging me to create more art.

Since then I started making sketches and soon I even sold them to school friends.

Born and living in South Africa, I am married with two children. I was a computer programmer before I studied to complete my Diploma in Multimedia design in 2010, after which I started painting full-time. When I wish to relax, I love to read and play with my cat.

About My Art

Example of Commissioned Work: Baby Girl Pastel Portrait by Artist Magda de Lange

I am happiest when working on commissioned art portraits. I have also done landscapes, romantic scenery and portraits of pets on request.

When I don’t have commissioned work waiting, I love painting celebrities.

When doing landscapes, I love to paint the beautiful world created for us by God. My definition of pure joy is playing with colors, shapes, textures and contrasts. I find this is also very important to think of all these elements of an artwork when painting, even though sometimes rules are meant to be broken 😉

My contemporary art would suit the decor of most homes and my portraits especially would be great for the entrance, lounge and even bedrooms in a family home.
