ORIGINAL ART

Karen  

is self taught artist, and began her career as a graphic designer starting her own London agency at just 22 years old, and won many industry awards for her work, over a decade of working in the design business. 

 

In later life she founded a successful business providing intricate and exceptional face and body art. She has worked for prestigious clientele in London and nationally. She is well known in the body art industry and is in demand as a teacher of her methods of painting. She travels the country and has been invited further afield to USA to impart her knowledge. Karen has won a great many competitions for her body art including Body Painter of the Year in both 2015 and 2016,  and Creative Makeup Artist of the Year 2016 at the UK's largest Body Art Festival in Norfolk. 

 

Karen has progressed to working on canvas recently after discovering resin and falling instantly in love with this medium. The uncontrollable nature of resin creates a challenge that Karen is happy to take on. Her love of colour and unique style has got her noticed showcasing her work in a solo exhibition in spring 2018, and she also created a bespoke art wall for the Supershoes Garden in the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show

Linda

has been painting in various forms for over 20 years. She is a trained professional face and body painter and has worked in the corporate and private sector for over 8 years, including several years of working in the theatre as a face and body artist. She has produced many murals for clients all over Hertfordshire. 

Linda enjoys exploring different types of art and over the years has attended many courses including life drawing, botanical illustration and air brushing techniques to name a few.

 

More recently Linda has taken an intensive resin course learning all the intricacies of this art form and has produced numerous commissions using this medium. Her work has become recognised amongst her peers and her work appears in several private collections. She is drawn to the abstract nature of resin and fluid art relishing the unpredictability of this method, and rising to the challenge.

 

She is inspired by the natural world and draws on this appreciation of flora and fauna when creating her own unique designs. She enjoys working on large scale luxury pieces using various pigments, mica powders and glitters to add depth and texture to her artwork.
