Karen Bloomfield

Karen Bloomfield

Karen burst onto the art scene in her 40’s & has been steadily gaining national recognition since.

Working from the NSW Central Coast surrounded by nature, Karen’s work deals with the detail in
the hidden moment. Early loss & challenge coupled with experience in the built environment imbued the Artist with a fascination for emotion & connection. It is these qualities that permeate even her most industrial subjects.
Represented in NSW & the ACT, Karen’s work is frequently selected to national competitions & exhibitions; collected privately & internationally; exhibited in solo & joint shows in NSW & VIC, and by commission. 

 

Artist Statement

I believe that my role as an artist is to capture & preserve society in this very moment & to garnish this captured moment with my own filters, wit, emotions & beliefs.

It is in this way I share my vision of how I perceive that simple, mundane, ugly & unexpected things may be viewed to be beautiful or, at the very least, engaging. It is my desire to encourage the growth that comes from seeing more than one viewpoint – in everything.

To me, an emotional response from my audience, be it nostalgia, love, discomfort or joy, is my benchmark for how successfully I have empathised with & represented my subject.

Find Your Own Artistic Style

Find Your Own Artistic Style

An Artist Program customised just for you!

Struggling with trying top find your way and looking for a style that is uniquely YOU!

 

BYO SUPPLIES

I hear so often from my students, art friends and creatives That the #1 challenge they face is worrying about being the same as other artists and the fear of not being authentic and having their own Signature Style!. Does this Sound like You?

Don’t worry, you are not alone! Every artist has a little voice inside their head telling them “I am not Good enough, or Is my work good enough? Sound familiar?

This is normal – you are only human – We all have up days and down days. Being an artist is like being on a a roller coaster, but if you are prepared to take the ride along with all the ups and downs, trust me, you will grow as an individual and an artist.

“Every Creative Move you make in your art is a step closer to the artist you were born to be”

In this 6 Month Art Program we will look at:

Creating a robust studio practice where you show up every week and take action and responsibility for your creative journey.

Learn what makes you tick in your own creative process and the signs to avoid getting bogged down in your own head

Understand how to work through an ugly painting and bring it back from the Abyss

Develop a body of works and portfolio

Work on a different monthly project in the studio and at home with a small group of like minded creatives and receive constructive feedback and solutions to assist you move forward with confidence
