About the Artist

Karen drew high speed portraits as an official artist at the Fringe Festival, Edinburgh for three summers, and also produces landscape and animal paintings. She gets a kick from energy and colour, often combining the traditional with the abstract. You can buy original artworks, cards and prints, including her “Slice of Scotland” range. Karen takes commissions and is looking forward to seeing you.

Karen’s art conveys energy and her passion for colour. She uses different mediums including mixed media, watercolour, oil, soft pastel and inks. She enjoys operating between the realms of a more traditional approach to painting and a more abstract way. This keeps her engaged and allows her to explore her love of colour.

“Highly coloured landscapes” inspired by Scotland’s scenery, painted using inks, are more abstract. In contrast her popular range “A Slice of Scotland”, are more traditionally painted using watercolour.

You can buy vibrant hand painted cards or choose from a mix of prints; animals and landscapes (including Blue Fish, Highland Coo, and Stag). Small original artworks are available along with larger works. There are scenes of local landscapes around Falkirk, Stirling as well as Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Karen takes commissions and is very much looking forward to showing you around.
