Karen Stone studied Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art, Birmingham City University and Life Drawing at The Slade School of Art, University College London. As a student her work was selected for the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists New Horizons exhibition and since then she has exhibited in London and across the UK. Her work Crows with Yellow Square took the Unison Non Member Award at The 119th Pastel Society Annual Exhibition, Mall Galleries London.
“My work investigates the process of drawing and painting in order to create visual forms that have a connection to everyday life. My inspiration comes from subjects that ‘call’ to me in some way, which I observe and then reinterpret. I combine my emotional response with accurate observational drawing and free use of paint to create fresh, lively works of individual character.”
Karen lives and works from her studio in the centre of Worcester. She combines her studio practice with part-time lecturing for the local college and private tuition.
