After several years working in London in a role unrelated to the Arts, Karen returned to painting. She works in a wide range of media including oil, oil and dry pastel and specialises in bold watercolour. Her subject matter is varied, but often reflects her love of boats, water and the warmth of the Mediterranean. Karen divides her time between Shedart's studio in Newdigate and her picture framing business in Redhill; Karen Perry Picture Framing & Fine Art www.karenperryframing.com. The shop in Redhill welcomes all framing enquiries and operates by appointment only. Born and educated in Surrey, Karen gained a London University Honours degree in Fine Art and History. She now lives in Horley with her husband, Richard.
