Karen works primarily in Scratchboard, Pastel and Oils, from her Rarangi beachside studio. A passion for wildlife art and portraits, she is one of 16 artists internationally to be juried in as a Master Scratchboard Artist. Karen has won several awards for both scratchboard and pastel, including the Supreme Award in the Nelson Art Awards, and twice being runner-up in the national PANZ Pastel exhibitions.
Scratchboard is a process of etching with tools such as scalpel blades and tattoo needles, to remove the top surface of black Indian ink to expose the secondary layer of white kaolin clay underneath.
