I’m Karen Louise, an abstract mixed media artist from Perth Australia. I grew up on the south coast of England where I met and married my husband. We emigrated to Perth, Australia in 2006 with a newborn son and our heads full of dreams. We now have 4 boys and our hearts and home are full of love and noise.
My art studio is my sanctuary, my process is peaceful and meditative giving balance to the madness of motherhood. I paint intuitively, guiding my chosen mediums and getting lost in the movements of my chosen tool or brush. I’ve recently been drawn to natural fibres and clay and have been creating a range of wall hangings that are beautiful and earthy.
Tuning out and unplugging helps me to listen to my heart and create what it desires and in exploring different mediums my creativity flows.
Inspired by nature, and fortunate to live overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean, my colour palette is earthy, muted, and calm. The artworks that evolve compliment beautiful neutral interiors and bring serenity to their surroundings.
Drawn to texture and flow, layers, and the beauty of imperfection. I hope to draw the viewer in to slow down, and be transported to feel a sense of peace and appreciation.
