Karen Eames

I work from my studio in Winchester surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Hampshire. I am currently painting local landscapes/seascapes. I work across media anything form painting with acrylic, oil and glass. The media chosen to reflect the landscape I am trying to capture.My passion for painting continues to develop work that is often described as dreamlike with a whimsical edge . The process allows me to explore painting from a deeper level and are related to personal visual experiences of everyday life. The landscapes, skies and the countryside things that are part of a personal journey and history, the work embraces life experiences from both the past and present, exploring memories and trajectories of the everyday life.

“Landscapes and skies are often overlooked, they surround us and yet can be missed as we are caught up in our busy lives , I capture them on my phone and sketch on site, I like the idea they are part memory and part real. I have an intuitive approach to painting preferring to explore the colours of dreams rather than reality. They become part real and part of my dreamscape. They allow me to free myself from the reality of the everyday”
