Artist Member

Karen Blain (Phipps)

Karen’s work explores the formal and tonal relationships between objects and figures. She has previously explored a variety of subject matter, including landscape and the human figure, as well as her continuing fascination with still life which is the subject of the painting ‘Veiled Interior with Vessels II’.

Karen studied at Glasgow School of Art in the 1970’s and then taught art in schools in Glasgow and Lanarkshire. She returned to painting in 2003 and continues to explore the tonal relationships and spaces between objects in her paintings.
