About The Artist
Based in Chalkhill Studio, Oliver's Battery, Winchester, Hampshire, Karen originally trained and worked as a nurse. She always painted in her spare time.
Karen achieved her lifetime dream when she had the opportunity to study Fine Art at Winchester School of Art and Design. She has exhibited throughout the UK and beyond. Her love for painting continues to develop and her work is often expressive, dreamlike and captures a sense of place. Karen enjoys working across media, especially cold wax medium. Her work uses colour, texture and form to capture semi-abstract landscapes and seascapes. The texture is created in layers and she experiments with many different mark-making tools. She explores painting from a deeper level, often relating to personal, visual experiences of her everyday life.
Karen’s painting has a more intuitive approach, which she develops through self-reflection and spending time walking her dogs. She works in sketchbooks on site and completes the paintings in her studio.
They become part real and part of my dreamscape. They allow me to free myself from the reality of the everyday.”
