Here is some information on Karen for those who do not know her:
Karen is a full-time artist and illustrator, who took up art later in life after 25 years of nursing and raising her family of four sons. It was after a family holiday to Tasmania 7 years ago where she visited the numerous wonderful galleries, that her love for art and drawing was rekindled.
Initially drawn to miniature art, she was accepted as an Exhibiting Member of the Australian Society of Miniature Art (NSW) and won Best Watercolour and Best in Show in her first year of exhibiting. Since then, she has gradually moved into working on a slightly larger scale and specialises in coloured pencil works.
She has won numerous awards and her artworks can be found in collections around the world. She is in constant demand for commissions and illustration work and also writes and sells a range of comprehensive art tutorials from her website at www.karenhullart.com.
She is a member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, the Coloured Pencil Society of America and is an active member of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists. Her first children’s book Let’s Count Kisses was published in May of this year and she is currently working on her second book.
