Adam Smith Theatre, Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland Aug-Nov 9th 2019
ONFife is supporting local artist Karen Denwette with the provision of exhibition space in the Adam Smith Theatre Café.
'My Scotland' opens on Friday 30th August and runs until Saturday 9th November
Karen's exhibition is made up of acrylic paintings which she's been working on over the past couple of years. The works share experiences from the early years of her life. All proceeds from the sale of any paintings will be donated to local charities.
Karen lives in the lovely village of West Wemyss with her beloved Kori Boy, a twelve year old Cocker Spaniel. She describes herself as a forty something year old "Paint Splosher", the description of which really doesn't fit with her unique style and expressive portrayal of life.
Self-taught, Karen's life journey has had many ups and downs, much of which is reflected in her artwork. Chronic Health issues have required her to re-focus her thinking and change her career path and lifestyle. She has developed her artwork to meet those potentially negative challenges with creative positivity.
In her exhibition, she shares with her audience, many of her personal childhood and adult life experiences. She draws much of her inspiration from the Scottish landscape and from memories relating to her immediate family.
A keen artist and volunteer, constantly looking for new challenges.
The pictures shown above are all available as prints. Contact the artist for more information.
