Karin Angele first completed an apprenticeship as a dressmaker and worked in this profession for a limited time after her journeyman's examination. From 1988 she first studied painting and drawing at the Freie Kunstschule Stuttgart. She then studied fashion design at the University of Applied Sciences for Design in Trier. During her fashion design studies she received numerous scholarships at the European Academy of Fine Arts and at the same time followed her acting ambitions. With the prizes she won with her diploma thesis "Rheingold" on Richard Wagner's opera, she financed her acting studies in New York at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Her thesis work, "Rheingold," can be seen in the archives of Haus Wahnfried in Bayreuth. She began her acting career with a small role at the Stadttheater Trier, then landed her first leading role for the TV documentary C 14 - Vorstoß in die Vergangenheit as a Roman ruler and voiced a commercial for the radio station RPR. Before going abroad, she was mentored by stage and television actress Karyn von Ostholt. Parallel to acting, Karin Angele built up a second mainstay with the visual arts. She taught figurative painting and nude drawing at the European Academy of Fine Arts Trier as early as 1995, while still studying in Trier. In 1997 she was a founding member of the Freie Kunstakademie Artefact in Bonn and has been teaching there ever since. In addition, she was a lecturer at the Alanus University in Alfter/Werkhaus for eight years. Her own work, consisting mainly of painting and objects/wall installations as well as photography, has been recognized in national as well as international exhibitions. Angele has appeared in German TV productions, such as the comedy series Nikola as Sister Elke, as tennis teacher Gaby Hoffmann in Verbotene Liebe, in the crime series Wilsberg, and also in the 300th anniversary episode of the ZDF series SOKO Köln, in which she embodied the title role and the murder victim, the Irish innkeeper Maureen O'Brien, as well as in international cinema and TV productions, in which she acts in the respective national language. The UK production Salome won several awards in the category "Best Short Film" and was also officially selected by the Cannes Film Festival. In Turkey, Korhan Yurtsever cast Turkish-speaking actress Karin Angele in a key role in his TRT film production Koyverdin Gittin Beni. In the film, Karin Angele plays the part of a German married to a Turk, who arranges a family reunion despite difficult circumstances.
