Karen continues to create landscapes of more remote areas of Australia that she have been lucky enough to visit and enjoy with her bushwalking friends and artists. She fears for the future of the world’s natural wilderness areas and hopes to leave behind painted images of the world pre-climate change as a reminder to mankind of their careless neglect.
Emerging Artist, Karen Collins was born and bred in Brisbane. She has also lived in London, Sydney and Melbourne.
As a keen traveller and amateur photographer since her early 20’s, Karen has collected many images in her camera and her head from all over the world. In her early 50’s these began to provide Karen with an unlimited supply of inspiration for her oil paintings.
Karen also runs ART ST (www.artst.com.au), an online gallery for some of Brisbane’s emerging Artists.
I find huge inspiration in travelling, nature and exploring Australia's wonderful national parks and beaches. I am also inspired by many great artworks by Master painters from Monet to Streeton.
