About Karen Collins, Landscape Artist
(click to expand)

Currently Series of Paintings

Following on from the last couple of years, I am contunuing with my Australian landscapes inpired by travels and bushwalks where I have somtimes been in quite remote but spectactular landscapes. I combine my passion for painting with hiking and hope to share with you an array of spectacularly beautiful memories of places I have been lucky to have experienced over the years.

me and my art

I was born and bred in Brisbane, but have also been lucky enough to experience life in London, Sydney and Melbourne. In 2012 I returned to my roots and family in beautiful Brisbane.

Being a keen traveller, bush walker and cyclist, I have collected many images - in my head, and camera - from all over the world. These provide me with an almost unlimited supply of inspiration with which to create my oil paintings.

As well as painting, I am also the founder of ART ST.Art Studio

During the last 12 months, I have attended untutored Life Drawing at Brisbane Painting Classes, Abstracts Florals Workshop with Seabastian Toast and Oil Masterclass with John Wilson. I have previously attended "Draw the Human Body" life drawing at Museum of Brisbane, tutored Life Drawing classes and pastel workshops at The Royal Qld Art Society, and other various workshops held at Brisbane Painting Classes, The Brisbane Institute of Art, Victorian Artists Society. No matter what the class is, there is always something new to learn and tips to pick up!

"I was very pleased to be able to purchase Karen's works online. The works are fantastic and the artist very professional. The two pieces now hang proudly in my home. I can certainly recommend Art St and Karen Collins."
- Graeme

 

Inspiration for Art

I find inspiration in nature and exploring Australia's wonderful national parks and beaches and my love of animals often compells me to include them in my art.

Oil on Canvas
76 x 61 x 4 cm
$780

Mt Lindesay is a very distinct landmark near the Qld/NSW border and often referred to as a "wedding cake" because of the tiers. I love to sit and absorb the beauty of this mountain and the surrounding dry Australian landscape with its wide, open spaces - it is a place where you can really breathe.

"PALM GORGE"
contact Karen to view
Oil on Canvas
76 x 102 x 4 cm
$950

This is one of my favourite bushwalks in southeast Qld! Palm Gorge on Mt Greville. This gorge is relatively narrow, deep and steep and it is full of large bolders and palms. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many palm trees in one spot! A very gorgeous gorge! In this painting I have tried to convey the depth and coolness.

Springbrook National Park, is one of those areas that is so close to Brisbane I often wonder why I don’t go there more! This beautiful rock overhang can be found on the Warrie Circuit. Along this walk you see a great variety of wildlife including Crimson Rosellas, King Parrots and, in the rockpools, little blue crayfish. Forget your “warries” and enjoy this absolutely spectacular area!
