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.
Excited by the creation of colour in her paintings, she also finds the quality of the marks produced in printmaking particularly fascinating. Experiencing ‘the reveal’ is one of the joys of working with printmaking processes.
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 continually seeks to develop her art practise 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 the Cumbria Printmakers and Green Door artists collective. karenlester.com
