Karen is a contemporary artist with studios in the UK and Spain. She travels throughout the world creating studies in a range of media. She works from these and her imagination, accepting that at some point the painting takes over to create the final work in the studio.

 Her work explores human themes of love, regret, loyalty, determination and ambition.

Prior to painting Karen worked in psychiatry, social work and occupational psychometrics nationally and internationally. She communicates a perception of people, their relationships and the places they inhabit. 

She is interested in the psychology of art; the interaction between the artist, the work and the viewer.

She says of her work "I like to think we can still surprise one another!"
