Our January 2021 'Artist Of The Month' is:
K a r e n  W e l s h


Karen worked with her father as a sign painter and commercial artist, producing bespoke signs and pictorial art in the traditional way until 2011 when she moved to Wiltshire to paint full time.

Wiltshire, with its open chalk hills and wide valleys covered with hardy grasslands, provides the unique landscape that inspires her. The occasional tree dotted on the horizon accentuates the clean line between the earth and the sky. The feeling of freedom and being on top of the world is her inspiration.

I use acrylic paint as my chosen medium with a limited palette to keep the paintings fresh. I enjoy taking the colours and shapes, balancing tonal value and colour harmony creating paintings that capture the essence of the county.
