The work often relates to landscapes, skies and the countryside things that are part of a personal journey and history, the work embraces life experiences from both the past and present, exploring memories and trajectories of the everyday life. Karen likes to use different medium and relate it to the landscape or study she is painting.
“Landscapes and skies are often overlooked, they surround us and yet can be missed as we are caught up in our busy lives , I capture them on my phone and sketch on site, I like the idea they are part memory and part real. I have an intuitive approach to painting preferring to explore the colours of dreams rather than reality. They become part real and part of my dreamscape. They allow me to free myself from the reality of the everyday”
