From an early age Karen was rarely without drawing paper, and pencil. Little has changed. Her enthusiasm for art developed throughout her time at school and was encouraged by excellent, honest tuition. Following her degree course she worked in London in roles unrelated to the Arts. Karen returned to painting some years later. She now works in oil, oil pastel and specialises in bold watercolour. Her subject matter is varied, but often reflects her love of boats, water and the warmth of the Mediterranean.
"I aim to share the pleasure I find in art; its colour, energy, endless potential for communication and expression - connecting with the observer and his own experiences. The meld of art and response is an intensely personal, individual matter. If it brings peace, relaxation, liberation of the senses, all the better. I have shared what I feel when I paint."
Karen divides her time between a studio in Leigh and the gallery in Redhill.
Born and educated in Surrey. Karen gained a London University Honours degree in Fine Art and History. She now lives in Horley with her husband, Richard.
