Paintings by Karen Howard

Karen is now retired, having worked at Middlesbrough College since her children grew up. After receiving a set of  watercolours for her 40th birthday she enrolled in a leisure art class and loved it from the first lesson. She stayed with watercolours for the next few years and it remains her favourite medium. Occasionally she uses pastels and is experimenting with acrylics at the moment. Like many amateur artists she usually works inside from photographs but she also enjoys going on tutored art holidays when she can get out with like minded souls and battle the vagaries of an English summer.
