About the artist:

Karen an exhibiting artist (painter and sculptor)for over 20 years has works in numerous corporate and private collections both nationally and internationally. She holds solo exhibitions annually and regularly participates group shows. Her recent abstract paintings draw on themes inspired by nature, emotions, human interactions and virtues within us. Using colour, texture, form and rhythm she aims to take the viewer on a journey and explore the deeper levels that connect us all.

Her solo exhibitions have explored themes such as: 

‘Transformational moods’ insights often triggered by spoken word, visual   image or music, which transform the way we see ourselves, or others. 

 ‘Journeys’- an exploration of physical and spiritual journeys into unknown or confronting terrain leading to self- discovery and growth.
