I was born in Germany in 1956, one of 7 children. When I was 11 years old, my family moved to Ontario, Canada, where I happily lived for 25 years. |
In 1993 my husband, two kids and I moved to Melbourne, Australia. I now live in Altona Meadows, near the beach. We've been living here for 20 years. I have my own backyard studio, where I teach watercolour and acrylics classes and workshops.
I'm also a member of the Hobson's Bay Arts Society,hobsonsbayartsociety.weebly.co… and now have entered a new phase in my life where I am just focussing on creating art for the Clayfire Gallery in Daylesford, who are encouraging me to paint bigger and bigger works on Canvas. Therefore I am finding myself doing more acrylics work at the moment, than watercolour. I also do the occasional commissions and continue to enter my work in various local art shows, as well as doing a group exhibition with friends every two years.
I now have my artwork on many different products which can be purchased at my Redbubble shop. It is such a thrill for me to see my artwork on scarves, leggings, mugs, journals and all sorts of bags. If you want to have a look, check out my Redbubble shop here: www.redbubble.com/people/karin…
If you wish to contact me, the best way is to send me a note here on Deviantart or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
