Encouragement of art in buckinghamshire

Karen Martin

I studied mixed media, life drawing, printmaking and the history of art at Amersham and Wycombe College, following retirement as a midwife.

Art form since then has been varied and interesting with an emphasis on both attention to detail as well as experimentation as I continue with mixed media, life as well as printmaking.

Being drawn towards physicality in my work with the use of found materials, collage, and alternative methods of working, influenced by what the world has to offer in the way of inspiration ,abstraction and the natural form, as well as other artist such as Keifer, Tress and Kokoschka.

Working plein aire is my passion, and sketching and photography on location gives inspiration,

I regularly exhibit with Bucks, Berk and Herts Printmakers, and have exhibited mixed media at various locations, including: Dulwich Picture Gallery – Open Exhibition & Bucks County Museum – Off the Wall.
