About the Artist

Karen Radford is an artist and teacher based in Whitstable Kent.

She studied Painting at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London and later turned to printmaking at the Putney College of Art.

Karen has shown her work in a number of galleries across the UK including having work at the Sidney Cooper gallery in Canterbury as part of The Contemporary open Print Fair in 2013. Karen also supplied ‘Liberty’s Pop Up Print Department’ from 2011 to 2012.

Karen’s new work explores her fascination with colour, texture and pattern in its abstract form. Working in an instinctive and organic way, Karen allows the medium to almost dictate the shapes and textures that appear on the page. Her personal collection of papers, textiles and found objects are a constant source of inspiration. Her background as a painter has given her a library of shapes, colours and images that are still a point of reference in her preparatory drawings. Nothing is pre planned in the drawing process it is always spontaneous. Once the image is committed to screen, she often uses collage and paper stencil masks to explore a variety of printing possibilities.
