Originally trained at the Cheltenham College of Art, Barbara Karn has an established reputation for her drawings of animals. By drawing directly in front of the subject she finds that the life and personality of the animal comes through. Although it can be very challenging studying a subject who won't keep still for very long, this results in a lively and economical interpretation of each character. A confident line and vibrant style are signature features of her work. Barbara works from her studio at her home in Cornwall and exhibits her work in galleries throughout the UK.
