Imaginary menageries
"Karen combines watercolor, words and embroidery to create these awesome, unique works of art!" Aimee Ray, Doodle Stitching.

 

A collection of previous works, inspired by everything from Cockney Slang, Doris Day and the lunatics I'm related to.

Although anything and everything can inspire me; music plays a big part as does humour and I draw on a lot of childhood memories too, I just love painting animals (not literally as clearly that would be wrong and besides they tend to wriggle to much) but they're where it's at as far as I'm concerned. I'm just a big old tree hugging, animal loving, hippy and that's the mainstay of my work.
