Buble's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

Karen was born in Rotterdam, Holland in 1948 .
At the age of 7 immigrated with her parents to Australia
From very early on, art played an integral part in her life
and was always her preferred subject whilst at school.
For her, a simple pencil and piece of paper and the ensuing
sketches and doodles was all there was needed to captivate her.

Karen began her formal art education upon returning to Holland in 1978,
in which she received some basic steps and tips regarding creating art.
After this, she received guidance from Rob Hessels (a well known Dutch artist)
on the understanding and use of oil paints, an elusive medium.

Karen’s inspiration comes from a myriad of places;
most prominently the beauty of nature and people.
Although her medium of choice is oil, she has recently ventured into the use acrylics also.
She believes variety is the spice of life and this is reflected in her choice of subjects,
which changes with the seasons with consistency.

Most recently, Karen has moved from Holland to Ireland to be with her fiancÚ. This location was chosen for its beautiful scenery, tranquil nature and kind people.

To date, Karen has sold paintings in many countries (Australia, USA, Germany, England and Kiev, Russia) in addition to holding three exhibitions in Holland.
