About the tutor
Karen works across media, painting, drawing and printmaking, selecting media to respond to a variety of reference sources, particularly those found in the landscape, natural and man-made. 

Her interest in Printmaking developed at Kendal College whilst completing a Foundation Degree in Drawing with the University of Cumbria. A recent project, a commission by Lancaster University and focussing on Morecambe Bay is a series of images using a variety of printmaking techniques.

She enjoys a freer style of painting and drawing as a perfect way to respond to subjects, as well as the excitement of the possibilities of colour. As part of her evolving practice, she continually seeks to develop through exploration of the wonderful qualities of different media, often combining materials to create mixed media images.

Karen is an experienced qualified teacher and has been teaching in the adult education sector since 2011. She is also a Member of Cumbria Printmakers and Green Door artists’ collective.
