Our Story

“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at the picture for a second and think of it all your life.” Joan Miro

The Cow Artworks Gallery

The Gallery

Welcome to The Cow Artworks, established in 2004 and situated in Parkhurst, Gauteng. Our mission, then as today, was to promote affordable, high-quality art specializing in photography.

The gallery specializes in fine art black and white photography from both national and international photographers, whose images are sold exclusively by us. We have a track record of over 16 years supplying art to corporates, private homes, restaurants and hotels.

One of our major achievements has been to establish photography within a wide viewing public, making it more popular, affordable and accessible.

Our loyal clients return again and again, trusting us to find them works of art that are not only a sound financial investment but, more importantly, will give them and their families pleasure for generations to come.

The Founder

After 18 years in the IT industry, Doreen Pfeiffer decided to surround herself on a daily basis by photography that she loves which led to the establishment of The Cow Artworks in 2004.

When she’s not sourcing beautiful art for her clients, Doreen loves to travel, and enjoy socialising with close friends and family. Some of her favourite things are …


  • Watching polo
  • Learning about new trends in the art world and bringing these to the gallery.
  • Finding new and original projects to create unusual art.
  • Interacting with clients to provide unique artworks for their homes or offices.

“The Cow Artworks is my go-to gallery to find exclusive pieces. Doreen assisted me on several projects to source photography, adding the final elegant touch to a room, whether it’s decorating corporate offices, sourcing art for an exhibition or finding signature pieces for my home. It’s a pleasure to work with her, she is very knowledgeable, offers sound advice and delivers on time, every time. Highly recommended!”
