Karen is an artist based in Edinburgh and East Lothian. The majority of her works are inspired by her immediate surroundings – the coast and hills of East Lothian, the shore at Newhaven, and the buildings of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Karen works predominantly in oils, however, prefers to use a variety of techniques using a range of beeswax, varnishes, and pure colour pigments. She is a professional member of Visual Arts Scotland and a graduate of the Painting Course, Advanced Painting and Drawing Course and Printmaking Course at Leith School of Art.
