Karen Monaghan

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1983 with a BA Hons degree and completed a year of post graduate study. I then lived and worked overseas for 12 years. Returning to the West coast of Scotland in 1998 I painted from my studio overlooking the shore. Now living and working in East Lothian I paint from my studio working on images inspired by the landscape.The difference in light and landscape in places I came to know well has influenced the colour and atmosphere in my work. I am also interested in figurative work, mostly painting my family as a pictorial diary as we all grow and change.
