I have spent several years attending painting classes through Red Door Studio in Research working under Nell Frysteen and now with a group of students at Red Door Studio in Eltham. I attended my final year of school at CLC Eltham and my family still lives in the area.
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.
