Karen Hopkins - Artist - Naarm /Melbourne - Victoria - Australia
I respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians on the land on which I live, work and play and pay my respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging.
Nature and the landscape and the interconnectedness of all life are a constant inspiration to me I paint create sculptures and write poetry. I also have experience in mural painting, gallery management, exhibition curation teaching art to a range of abilities, mentoring emerging artists and more recently have begun a journey studying permaculture and facilitating workshops in Eco-Art Therapy, and Active Hope book study groups.
I feel art has the ability to uplift connect and transform and I have been an exhibiting artist since 1991(Prior to that I worked as a teacher and Lecturer )I have artworks in numerous corporate and private collections both nationally and internationally. My paintings and quirky sculptures draw on themes inspired by nature, aspects of being human, emotions, and virtues within us. Using colour, texture, form, and rhythm I aim to take the viewer on a journey and explore the deeper levels that connect us all.
