Karen Dupe: Artist

Crewkerne, Somerset

An artistic butterfly from the fine arts; painting in acrylics, drawing in pencil and ink, printing and ceramics... sculpture (getting better at it!) also stained glass, photography, textiles and film making whilst earning a crust as a graphic designer and illustrator and bringing up a family.

Recently I have been working mainly in acrylics on canvas and paper. Also black ink and coloured pencils, quite old school, well actually just like school but very rewarding textures and colours. 

Current themes include bugs, chickens, plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables. Future projects are looking to food, religion and Persian rugs for inspiration.
