My name is Karen, and I am an Abstract Artist & Fluid Art Teacher living in Shellharbour NSW, Australia.
After a successful career as a Graphic Designer, I fell in love with painting abstract art in early 2018. I love creativity, colours and expressing emotions through art, and enjoy exploring different techniques and styles of fluid art and abstract art.
Finding inspiration in life and nature, I find painting therapeutic and calming and I just switch off into my own world of canvas, paint and imagination.
I appreciate simplicity, and understand a collector needs to connect with my art, in a similar way as I do when creating it.
My style primarily features movement, and I strive to create modern art that exudes a sense of calmness, freeness and a dash of inquisitiveness.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching Fluid Art to my students. Fluid Art has bought relaxation and calmness to my life and I hope I can pass this enjoyment onto my students.
I am a dedicated animal lover and volunteer my time with Lost & Found Pets Illawarra as their Vice President. I find Grizzly Bears and Wolves absolutely fascinating and even moved countries to volunteer for a well-known not-for-profit black bear organisation.
As a keen traveller, I have spent a great deal of time visiting and living in North America since I was 17. My favourite place to visit is Yellowstone National Park and one day I hope to paint it’s undeniably beautiful landscape.
