Venue address: 1, School Lane BN18 9DR
Karin has had studios in Chelsea Covent Garden Battersea and Surrey but has for many years now lived and worked in West Sussex. She remains continually inspired by her surroundings here though London specifically and urban scenes generally still hold a place in her heart.
During Lockdown Karin found herself examining and enjoying her immediate surroundings more which is seen in her recent plant based work. As worlds closed in Karin began working on a larger scale whilst looking very closely at the details of each subject enjoying the changing light bringing everything to life.
For Karin it has always been the creative process that has been as important as the final work and changes occur regularly during the painting. She often works over older paintings which then become part of new ones. She started life as a textile designer and following her roots is introducing elements of pattern back into some of her new work.
The threads in Karin's worlds weave together and one area feeds the other. Her plein air landscapes informs her studio based work while her detailed sunlit plant paintings makes one feel as though they were painted in the open air.
