About the Artist
Karl attended Lieth School of Art from 2012 to 2014. Having left school at 18 he worked in a variety of jobs before settling in Local Government for over 30 years. He ‘retired’ from paid work in 2012 to take up his artistic path.
He enjoys a range of media and has found particular interest in drawing with sharp blade, cutting into card and then painting the worked surface using shellac and pigments. Once hardened the piece can be used like an etching plate to make 1 to 4 prints. The work is then cleaned up but ink deposits are left in the work adding line and some added tone to the final image. Both the paintings and prints are available.
These original designs are inspired by characters and places drawn from life and Karls’ travels. All reflect his continuing interest in people and what lies beneath the surface.
Paintings are sold framed.
Prints can incorporate some chine colle or or acrylics for added colour to make each piece individual. They are hand made with a press using high quality paper and either framed or just mounted.
