Karen Hollis specialises in bright, bold floral paintings that are flooded with light. Her Limited Edition Fine Art Prints of flowers capture the viewer and draw them in.
About The Artist :
Hollis paints bold and bright floral paintings that capture the very essence of the flower. Her rose paintings have a real sensuousness to them. Each painting depicts deep curves and swirls. Her lily paintings are suffused with light which creates shade and depth. While the complex shapes of her orchid paintings show blends and twists, each revealing hidden depths.
Karen uses both oil paint and acrylic paint to create her lively canvases. Using the fluidity of the oil paints she creates smooth blends and deep shapes. While acrylic paints allow her to create glazes that give deep warm tones that overlay her strong shapes, creating flowers of rich hues.
Hollis’s work differs from traditional botanical art as her main aim is to capture the way light falls across a bloom. This gives the flower it’s body and strength. She aims to capture the essence of the flower not the accuracy.
