Karen Bowen | In the Night Garden
I am an artist living in the Patch in the Dandenong Ranges. Working mainly in oils, I use bold colour and line in my mostly dramatic contemporary pieces. I am fascinated by the colours and patterns in nature and find inspiration through both the micro and macro levels of observation of the world around me. I love to create work where I get lost in the colour and the pattern and am delighted when others respond in the same way.
I’m interested in learning more about creative and artistic expression. I often explore and respond to the work of different artists and genres in my search my own “artist voice” and have a love of expressionism and the artists of early to mid 1900s. I have also been putting my toe into the portrait world and find it a challenging and wonderful experience.
My paintings have sold to various private individuals in Melbourne and I also produce a range of art cards and prints for sale and am happy to take on commissions.
My mantra is art for the joy of colour. Check out my Instagram for more @abracadabra_designs
