Collection: Karen Osborne

Karen Osborne studied History of art with fine art at De Montfort University, Leicester. After a career as a Creative Director in the Stills photography industry, she re-established herself as a painter in her home studio in Surrey in 2019.

Working largely in acrylic and mixed media, she has developed a fluid semi-abstract style, with expressive mark making and balance of line, mark and colour as her foundation.

Karen takes her main inspiration from nature in all its forms; from the beauty of UK gardens, to the wild sweep of our countryside and the coast. Vibrant colour and bold marks inform her work, as does fascination with the beauty of our world. Through her work, she invites you to stop, look and smile. 

Karen is a member of both the United Art Space and Louise Fletcher’s Art Tribe. She was longlisted in the 2023 VAO Art Prize, and was a finalist in the 2023 Women in Art Awards.
