Karen Atkins’ ethereal images demonstrate her talent for displaying the wonder and extraordinary in the everyday. She draws from personal connections to landscapes and myths to create her work. She comments that, “My paintings evolve from experiences, observations and they explore, with romance and whimsy, the places our choices may take us. My personal mythology draws from traditional myths and fables and is enmeshed with stories I have lived. I am constantly amazed by possibilities, enormous skies and sumptuous colours and extraordinary relationships between people, animals, land and art and my aim is to convey my wonder in the everyday and the extraordinary in my paintings.”
Karen has won several awards for her work including the Royal Art Society of NSW Autumn Medal of Distinction 2015 and Royal Art Society of NSW Thora Ungar Medal of Distinction 2015.
