Karin is a Award winning Artist.

She received a Third prize and also the Faye Boyd Art School Scholarship at the Clarence River Art Festival in 2018.

Karin received First Prize for a sunrise seascape in pastel at the Lions Art Extravaganza in Brisbane in 2016.

Karin has previously exhibited her work in The Old Schoolhouse Gallery in Cleveland Qld. Since moving to the Clarence Valley she now exhibits her art at the Ferry Park Gallery in Maclean N.S.W. and at Coldstream Gallery in Ulmarra N.S.W.

Karin started painting in the Folk Art Decorative Painting style back in 1992 and started teaching in her Brisbane home studio in 1996. She has won many awards for her Decorative Art.

She loves painting in Pastel, Acrylic and Mixed Media and enjoys painting seascapes, sunrises, sunsets, waves, birds,abstracts and mixed media.

Her inspiration comes from nature itself being the ocean, landscapes, flowers, birds just to name a few.

Karin is a keen photographer so she has many reference photos to choose from as inspiration for her artwork.

Since moving to the Clarence Valley near the beach, the inspiration never stops.

I hope you enjoy her art as much as she enjoys creating it for you.
