 Karen Colenso      

My love for the Australian environment and its natural colour palette, mixed with my passion for gouache, watercolour and coloured pencil are combined to create a variety of illustrations and designs.


Having always enjoyed painting and drawing, I have been fortunate

to enjoy a career in the Art Industry, mainly teaching and mixing with like minded people.


I now derive much pleasure from sketching and painting whilst travelling along a dusty track, walking along a beach or sitting

by a river bank. However my own humble backyard and garden provide a constant source of inspiration for me.
