About Desiree Elizabeth Malan

I'm a multi-disciplinary artist who lives in South Africa. I recently closed my ceramic teaching and production studio after 10 busy years and now focus on photography and watercolour painting. I find sheer joy in observing the ocean and studying the rockpools at low tide. The cyanotype process of printing directly from plants and objects is my favourite current art practise.

Education

I studied Graphic Design at a tertiary institution many moons ago but didn't complete the course. I am mostly self taught and have completed numerous short courses and workshops in various art disciplines.

Events

I was an artist in residence at the Cite des Arts Internationale in Paris in 2013 and 2015. I have also recently done an art residency at Compeung, Chiang Mai in Thailand.
