Irish artist Karen Shaw, Antrim

Thanks for stopping by. I am Karen Shaw and I live on the East Coast of Country Antrim near the historic town of Carrickfergus. I am mainly self-taught and have been drawing since my school days but there was a huge gap while I worked, got married, raised four children and ran my own non-art-related business. We retired to Brittany in 2002 and that is when I started drawing again, using a new to me method of blendable oil based colour pencils. I tend to specialise in these now because they give me a very fine way to create detailed drawings. I draw the 3Fs….flora, fauna and feathers! My husband is a talented amateur photographer and it is he who provides most of the inspiration for my work, by taking close-up photos of my subjects.
