Karen is an artist originally from Kingsley in Perth and a school teacher, she is currently based in Dunsborough. A painter who enjoys working with bright pastels and loves to paint seascapes, landscapes as well as rock sculpting and making textiles.
Karen takes photographs of where she wants to paint or draw then brings them back to her studio. What she cannot do and will never do is use a photograph twice as she feels that she does not get the right vibe that she requires and the inspiration that she needs to re-create it.
When choosing a place to paint she said it is simple as “you get the feel and off you trot” back to the studio to create.
