PROFILE

Born in Surrey January 1962.

 

Karen worked with her father as a sign painter and commercial artist producing bespoke signs and pictorial art in the traditional way until 2011 when she moved to Wiltshire to paint full time.

 

Wiltshire, with its open chalk hills and wide valleys covered with hardy grasslands, provided the unique landscape that inspired her. The occasional tree dotted on the horizon accentuates the clean line between the earth and the sky. The feeling of freedom and being on top of the world was her inspiration.

 

Acrylic paint is her chosen medium usually with a limited palette to keep the paintings fresh. Mark making with large flat brushes giving a painterly and loose feel.

 

Karen has been on a journey to abstraction. Her paintings have developed from figurative through to semi abstract and total abstraction. Starting with gestural marking then layering the paint, concentrating on balancing tonal value with colour harmony, She develops the works until she has achieved the desired outcome.

MY ART

August 2019 was a turning point for me I found the excitement of painting abstractly.

 

My work is represented by galleries across the country with which I periodically exhibit.

 

The highlight of the month for me is meeting and sharing my work with the visitors of Salisbury Arts Scene.

 

I am a member of Salisbury Group of Artists and am heavily involved as a committee member for Plain Arts Salisbury as treasurer and secretary.

 

Take advantage of an invitation to come to my studio to view paintings by visiting my website to make an appointment - please click HERE

 

A full gallery of my work is also available on the website.

"Karen’s paintings jumped out at me... I really liked her use of colour and shape forming abstract landscapes... a visit to her gallery saw me buying two!"   Simon, Salisbury
"Clearly inspired by the rolling countryside of Wiltshire and Dorset, the boldness of colour and shapes displayed a rarely seen originality of approach.  I could not pass by!"   Cecilia, Salisbury
