Karen only works by hand, utilising her preferred media watercolour, ink, gouache, pens, pencils, on their own or in combination to produce her work. Influenced by nature and the people and things she sees around her, Karen’s illustrative style is bold, textural and colourful and at times, incorporates intricate linework. She also enjoys making abstract artworks that examine the effects of watercolour and ink on paper and the surfaces of various substrates.
