A celebration of the female through flowers, fruits and figures. Oil paintings, textiles and botanical water-colours.
Many of the botanical pieces refer to the taboos placed on the natural menstrual cycle and seek to empower this beautiful gift bestowed upon the female sex. The paintings hope to promote open and positive conversations around a topic normally associated with secrecy and disgust in a world where women, even on our own doorstep, are unable to afford or have access to sanitary products.
In contrary style, Karen's figurative oil paintings explore inspiring women, making references to representations of women in history, art, religion and mythology.
