Karen Wilson

Karen Wilson has painted all of her life, the catalyst being the gift of oil paints at an early age. Karen still has an oil painting that she painted at the age of 12 years old. Her paintings are predominantly still life, landscapes, seascapes or interiors in her favourite medium of oils. Working with a palette knife, her paintings are characterised by vigorous thick buttery slashes of colour, with highlights of heavy impasto paint on areas where pigment is otherwise barely staining the canvas.
