Karin is a mixed media painter, working predominantly with acrylics, often adding in other mediums including plaster, and mark making tools including charcoal, graphite, pastels and ink. Influenced by her Scandinavian heritage, drawing her towards a calming and neutral palette, she uses texture, tone and subtle layering to achieve a sense of movement, depth and interest. Although she paints with a lot of energy she likes to evoke a sense of calm in the final output. She is inspired by her travels as well as her every day environment: the beach, ocean, bush and rural landscape. Karin lives in Sydney with her husband and two children.
