Hello beautiful customer!

My name is Malani Venter and I started doing custom acrylic portrait paintings a few years ago. My business name is Kaatjie Produkte, named after my fat little black cat. For 16 years I was a journalist/editor at an Afrikaans daily newspaper in Cape Town, but Covid changed that in June 2020.

I start to focus full time on painting lots of families with their furry and real kids as well as making quirky handmade products of my art printed on luxury linen. At the end of 2022 I joined the media again and is currently in the night office of the Afrikaans newspapers. In the mornings I am an entrepreneur (actually, you never stop to be one!) and at night I am a night news owl!

I live in the beautiful Banhoek Valley outside Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, South Africa. To be able to create and to make this country a little bit more quirky and beautiful is an absolute pleasure.

Enjoy this virtual visit on my online shop. And if you are making a purchase, thank you so much!
