Karen Wride - Artist

Drawing has always been a passion of mine. From an early age, I loved to experiment with different mediums and techniques. But it wasn't until after I completed 4 years at art college studying Design and Print that I discovered oil paints.

Straight away I was hooked.

Now I divide my time between teaching others how to paint and draw, undertaking commissions, and creating new pieces to exhibit and sell via a number of art galleries in the region where I live.

If you would like to commission a particular piece of work, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.


Beautiful memories captured in oils.
