Karen R. Barber


I have been a freelance fine artist exhibiting my work in solo and group exhibitions spanning over forty years. My works are exhibited both in Australia and overseas in corporate businesses and private homes.I began my practical interest as therapy for a lengthy illness. Porcelain was my first venture. I recall sitting for hours on end in what was almost a cupboard, practicing brushstroke after brushtroke, blending colours and drawing, drawing, drawing. Finally I got my own studio that enabled me to expand my ideas and venture into other mediums. I love florals, landscapes, portraiture and experimenting with mediums and styles. Therefore my work is quite colourful, expressionistic and free.
