After several years working in London in a role unrelated to the Arts, Karen returned to painting. She works in a wide range of media including oil, oil and dry pastel, and specialises in bold watercolour. Her subject matter is varied, but often reflects her love of boats, water and the warmth of the Mediterranean.
Karen divides her time between a studio in Newdigate and picture framing gallery in Redhill; Karen Perry Picture Framing & Fine Art www.karenperryframing.com .
Born and educated in Surrey, Karen gained a London University Honours degree in Fine Art and History. She now lives in Horley with her husband Richard.
“I aim to share the pleasure I find in art; its colour, energy, endless potential for communication and expression. Once a picture is painted, my hope is the viewer will bring their own experiences and feelings to it. The meld of art and response is an intensely personal matter. If it brings peace, relaxation, liberation of the senses, all the better. I have shared what I feel when I paint.”
