Karen Munck FCSD, SGFA was trained at Croydon Art School and completed a post graduate fellowship at the School of Advanced Studies in Manchester before embarking on a career as a highly successful international designer. Having worked for many years as a designer I have, in recent years, returned to my first loves, painting and printmaking.
The beach at Shoreham, where I live, is an endless source of inspiration; the weather – extreme, the textures – endless, the colours and forms – a particular stimulus, a place of constant change and variety. Apart from the beach my subjects are frequently exotic landscapes, in Morocco, Spain and elsewhere.
I tend to work in series, completing several works on the same subject. My prints are usually small in number and often different from each other as I am more interested in exploring the medium than producing large number of prints all the same.
I have exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and Europe and have works in private collections both here and abroad.
