Karen is an established British artist based in Kent, UK. Her paintings are an interpretation of how she sees her surroundings. She likes to work with spontaneity letting the paint and colour form the work, using mark making and collage to accentuate areas of the painting. The ever changing surrounding landscape, coast, her home and garden being a constant source of inspiration as well as her travels to other parts of the world. She has exhibited in galleries and exhibitions in the UK and her paintings are owned by collectors nationally and internationally. Karen is also a selected member of the Rye Society of Artists.
'Often a painting realises my feelings and visual memories almost as a surprise. As though that memory of a place, colour, group of trees for instance, flows onto the canvas through my paint brush. My paintings to me are the essence of a place'
