Using flowers, fruits and other plants as her subject, Karen works in water-colour to create colourful, detailed paintings. Some are simply delicate studies capturing the beauty of nature, however she loves to tie in other themes such as ‘the female’, ‘motherhood’, ‘medicine’, or ‘folk tales, to tell stories or provoke thoughts from her art.
Based just outside Stroud, Karen exhibits around Gloucestershire and opens her garden studio every year with the SITE festival. She sells originals, prints and cards.
She receives many commissions and has completed ones including painting birth flowers, flowers around an initial, favourite cooking ingredients for the kitchen and a painting of many different houseplants and how to care for them. Please contact Karen to discuss any ideas you may have.
She has been teaching Botanical Art for several years and runs regularly workshops at the Gloucestershire Arts & Crafts Centre. Please see the ‘workshop’ page for dates or contact Karen via email for more information.
