Karen Pearce

Karen was raised running a family hotel business but art always tugged at her heart and with this artistic fire in her belly she returned to university as a mature student.  She graduated with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Textiles at the Cardiff School of Art & Design and now works as an artist/designer.

She is interested in line, movement, sound, colour, reflection and draws inspiration from the quiet yet dramatic seasonal changes that offer an elegant balance of chaos and order. Karen spends time walking her dog in pursuit of inspiring places to paint en plein air and uses her sketches to pare back the information, striving for visual balance and harmony.  She is inspired by artists Cy Twombly and Matisse.
