Every work I create tells a story. 'Hear them Speak' Narrative runs deep, Colour runs Wild.
'Karin is an award winning colourful expressive painter & multi-disciplinary artist living in Wellington, New Zealand.
Expression and movement are visible in her acrylic paintings with expressive strokes and splashes of kaleidoscopic colour juxtaposed. Karin’s work frequently shows her love of 'the whimsical ' with hidden messages and symbolism behind the pieces.
Each work is narrative. Oftentimes the narration is not obvious. If you wish to know what lies behind the idea for the work, just ask, Karin is ready to share that story with you. Some of the animal paintings are even auto-biographical.
