Your painting in it’s new home.  It has kept surprising us, as we had got so used to the painting that was there before.  It is a constant delight and the colours glow.  We love it and Many thanks.

Karen’s paintings jumped out at me from across the Greencroft at a Salisbury Art Exhibition. On closer inspection I really liked her use of colour and shape forming abstract landscapes and was attracted to one painting in particular. A visit to her gallery saw me buying two of her paintings that captivated me and are a constant source of pleasure in my home.

Visual art has the power to inspire emotion.

Each artist portrays their feelings and thoughts on a substrate that is unique to them. The viewer connects their own vision and relationship with a piece of art. It may be a landscape or a painting full of symbolism that tells a story, or shapes and colours that evoke a feeling of a place or time.

Original art has depth. The colours are displayed as intended by the artist. The painting hangs on the wall showing itself to you completely. The brush strokes and textures are an important part of the work. They add the extra dimension to viewing the piece.


When you hang an original abstract or semi abstract piece of art on your wall it adds another element to the room. It can promote interest with your visitors. Each person sees and feels it in their own way, especially being able to get up close and see the textures and techniques used.



At a Summer outdoor Art Fair, I was excited to come upon Karen’s paintings. Clearly inspired by the rolling countryside of Wiltshire and Dorset, the boldness of colour and shapes displayed a rarely seen originality of approach.  I could not pass by, so one of the landscapes is now displayed

in my hall way.

Karen is such a versatile artist…….. and a dangerous one too. From ‘Lola the Chicken’ through two more Wylye Valley landscapes, she was the natural choice when we thought of commissioning a painting of one of our favourite views. 

The result is just what we had in mind – bold, colourful, with plenty of Karen’s artistic licence, yet true to the essence of the subject. Stunning!
