Art for the joy of colour!
Karen Bowen is a Dandenong Ranges artist coming to a formal art practice following a teaching and management career. Using mostly oil on canvas, Karen paints familiar objects and landscapes in her compositions using intense, bright colours and bold lines to create works that celebrate the joy colour brings to her and the viewer.
Karen spent 3 years working under Melbourne artist, Nell Frysteen who shared a love of colour with her and started her on a journey towards colour mastery. Influenced by Matisse, the Fauves and Expressionists, Karen’s contemporary, domestic scale paintings and cards and prints have found buyers through social media outlets and at Kapi Art Space, Kalorama.
