Summary of Career

Art has always been important to Karina; at school, during her Marketing career and whilst raising her three children. She continually developed her skills, enjoying part time art courses during this time, culminating in a Fine Art Degree at Curtin University. After graduating, Karina volunteered for Fine Art at Hale, becoming Curator for 2016/17, whilst building her practice from her City Beach home studio. Karina turned professional in 2018 and her recent landscapes are informed by the restorative colours of nature, sensitively using all aspects of the paints materiality to lead the viewer into a place of familiarity and contentment.


Her first major exhibitions Biophilia:inside and out and The Wonder of Trees established Karina's work with local collectors, successfully selling her art at Open Studio events, in group shows and online. Being an invited artist in the Rottnest Foundation's inaugural exhibition and a selected finalist at the Perth Royal Show Salon were highlights of 2019. Karina also tutors creative amateurs in oil painting techniques and specialises in large scale landscape commissions for private homes.
