Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

Unframed Image Size: 12″x 12″

The lack of the human form in Karen’s landscapes is a deliberate omission, geared at bringing the
viewer to the realization of the need to protect Mother Nature from man's potential to destroy the
world around him, to encourage the viewer to step back and acknowledge the beauty of our land.
After leaving school Karen, determined to pursue a career in Art, set out towards that goal by
reading any art books she could lay her hands on .Books on the European Masters, the early
expressionists like Monet and Cézanne, by studying the works of well known local artists like
Cazabon, Hinkson, Leroy Clark, Louison, Mosca and Bryden to name a few. These local artists gave
her the impetus to go on.

Item condition: New



Karen has exhibited both locally and abroad, works in many different media, however acrylic is her
favourite medium because of its quick drying time, permanence and versatility. Constantly
studying her surroundings trains Karen's visual memory and helps her when combining reality with
Living in Trinidad and Tobago, being around people such as ours, in the company of loving family
and friends affords Karen the inspiration she needs. The relationship between the earth, sky and
water offers her a great challenge and the unspoiled rustic scenes of Trinidad and Tobago make
ideal subjects. It is the artist's hope that she could evoke an awareness of something unnoticed or
forgotten in our surroundings, that her paintings will invite viewers to move into the scene, only to
return with renewed love and respect for our natural environment.
Being an artist makes Karen strive towards a better awareness of God, her environment, the
people around her and herself. The ability to create a mere image of nature's magnificence is a gift
she will always cherish.
