About Kim Steinberg

Born in South Africa in 1982, Kim developed a love for the outdoors, Africa, wildlife and its people which grew in her from a young age. From early on she began studying art but is mostly self taught. She has worked in many mediums, but at the moment her preferred mediums are acrylics and oils as well as her love for photography, which has recently won her first and second place in the Getaway Magazine's 'Desert' theme competition in August 2010, a successful exhibit at the 7th annual art exhibition in Eshowe and some of her paintings are currently displayed at Peter Engblom's "Zulu Sushi" Gallery at the George Hotel in Eshowe. Kim is a trained interior decorator, and using her artistic eye, has decorated some beautiful homes as well as also creating some fantastic murals for lodges, bed and breakfasts, businesses and private homes. "I use art and photography to express my thoughts, emotions and passions. It has allowed me to discover who I am and find out what I have to say. I feel the connectivity of one thing to another and try to express these connections. I am inspired by the play of light, shadow, sheer colour, movement and atmosphere.” You can expect top quality work done by this new upcoming artist who is fast becoming a local celebrity in her own home town in Natal.

  • Kids Being Kids – Mtunzini

    Posted on May 25, 2021 by in Children, Family

    Did this gorgeous shoot on a warm autumn afternoon down on the Mtunzini beach. These kids were absolutely in their element splashing in the waves and enjoying some natural moments with their grandparents. I love being able to capture these completely unscripted moments in people’s lives… It is so rewarding knowing that these moments will be remembered and spoken about for years to come…

    This shoot was a birthday gift for Devlin’s beautiful wife Adele. They came to the Raphia Monument in Mtunzini which has become one of my new firm favorite places to shoot (thanks to my amazing photographer friend Chelsea Groome from groomedphotography) who re-opened my eyes to all the gorgeous settings we have in our little town to capture special memories for people… Their two children were right up there on the scale of ‘adorable’ and I had such a great time capturing these shots for them…
