About the Artist: “ ... For the past ten years Karen has been exhibiting both locally and abroad. She works in many different media, however acrylic is her favourite medium because of its quick drying time, permanence and versatility. Notes, photographs and sketches are used as references and combined with observation to enhance her ability to conceptualize. Constantly studying her surroundings trains Karen's visual memory and helps her when combining reality with imagination. Living in a country such as Trinidad and Tobago and being around a people such as ours and in the company of loving family and friends affords Karen all the inspiration she could ever need. The relationship between the earth, sky and water offers her a great challenge and the unspoiled rustic scenes of Trinidad and Tobago make ideal subjects. It is the artist's hope that she could evoke an awareness of something unnoticed or forgotten in our surroundings and that her paintings will invite viewers to move into the scene within the picture frames, only to return with renewed love and respect for our natural environment ...”Read more: 101 Art Gallery  and 101 Art Gallery-Facebook
