Born in London in 1978, Karen spent many of her school years in Geneva, before returning to the UK to attend Hampstead Fine Arts College in London.


Karen Turner Artist

Remaining in the city to work in media monitoring, Karen eventually found herself on the Suffolk / Norfolk border, where she has a small home studio.

A portrait and figure artist, Karen works predominantly in pencil but also in oils.  Naturally methodical and a keen observer of people, she uses a minimalistic, sculptural style to describe structure and to capture the essence of her sitter.
