  • Artist’s Statement

    Creativity has always been an essential part of Karen’s life.
    Whether painting a canvas, revamping a piece of old furniture, sewing an outfit or arranging a bunch of flowers in a bowl, she is energised by creating.

    Karen has ventured down different creative paths, but undoubtedly her visual arts practice is her main love. For over 20 years she has explored different mediums including acrylic, mixed media, textile art, wire and encaustic wax.

    Experimentation is important in her process and she loves nothing more than creating something beautiful and treasured from something unexpected, unwanted or discarded. Wire is used extensively in her work as she finds its versatility enables her to create sculptural and fluid pieces.
    Karen’s award winning art has been exhibited extensively and her commissioned pieces proudly hang in prominent residences and businesses here and abroad.
