Karen Thomas has Illustrated books in both England and the West coast of Ireland where she lived for ten years before returning to England to continue drawing her love of wildlife. She is a self-taught artist who has recently chosen to exhibit her art. She also works within mental health as an art facilitator, qualified counsellor and runs sessions on managing depression and anxiety whilst continuing to do private art commissions.
Karen can offer demonstrations using a variety of graphite pencils and sticks plus mediums such as oils, pastels, line and wash and mixed media. She can produce large scale drawings (5 foot) if the venue has a suitable support or wall that she can work off.
Based in Hertfordshire, Karen is willing to travel up to 50 miles (North of London) and also into Norfolk.
