Each day over the next two weeks, we introduce an artist exhibiting their work at The Mill Arts Centre. Read on to discover more about your favourite local artists.
Karen paints with wool, silk and cotton fibres. Working from still life, sketch book designs and photographs, she uses a colourful palette of wools, some dyed naturally from avocados, red and white onion skins and some commercially dyed merino wools, silks and cotton threads.
Karen is showing four signed, limited edition giclée prints from original felt and stitch work: Sunflower, Cockerel, Blue Tits and White Blossom.
Karen’s work is inspired by the changing colours, textures and movement of the seasons, from the cascading autumn leaves of crimson, copper and gold to the delicate stirring of pink and white spring blossoms, from fleeting clouds and stormy seas to the quiet still of hazy summer meadows.
She also has a love of writing and has written and published an illustrated book of poetry: ‘Poetry in Art - Hidden Faces’. Her poetry is also included in Restore’s ‘Dark Arts’ publication.
Our exhibition is available to view at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Covid-19 procedures will be in place to keep everyone safe.
