Karen Welsh was born 1962 in Surrey. She trained as a traditional sign painter and commercial artist. In 2011 she moved to Wiltshire to begin painting full time.
Karen has been on a journey to abstraction. Her paintings have developed from figurative through to semi abstract and total abstraction. Starting with gestural marking then layering the paint, concentrating on balancing tonal value with colour harmony, she develops the works until she has achieved her desired outcome.
