Karen's work consists of vibrantly coloured, three-plate etchings and painterly monotypes, which take the landscape for inspiration. Three-plate prints take a lot of foresight but allow a greater variety of colour combinations which are, for Karen, the most thrilling element of the printmaking process.
"It has remained my passion from my early days of making a print. Sometimes I use colour independently of the subject, generating light and space by colour alone."
Karen studied Art at Roehampton University in London before specialising in printing at Putney School of Art and Morley College in Lambeth. She has been a member of the Royal Society of Printmakers since 2008.
