My Bio

OK, deep breath, I’m writing a drawing book – “Get Drawing”.  It is based on my experiences introducing over 1000 Non-drawers to observation and drawing.

Now that you and the rest of the internet knows I would be happy to answer any questions or even help you with drawing questions via the blog.  You never know, you may end up in the book.

It’s all happening and full on and I’m delighted with how it’s coming along. Sooooooo I now have a new blog - Take a look.  "Get Drawing".


About Karen Frankel

Karen Frankel’s ‘conversations with canvas’ in mixed media allow for complete freedom to work with beautiful papers, inks, and acrylic without restrictions. Born in Zimbabwe, Karen grew up surrounded and influenced by the art of her father, gifted artist Eli Zagoria. Moving to Western Australia in 1984, she was captivated by the rugged beauty of the Western Australian landscape.

Strongly attracted to interesting shapes, particularly negative space for design and composition, Karen has developed a technique of image creation. In this she creates richly textured multilayered artworks, using papers, acrylic and drawing to build up the images in stages. This produces a certain magical, unexpected quality to the work - happy accidents - that add a character and depth to the work.    

Karen has exhibited widely in WA and works out of her studio in Morley, Perth, where she also runs a wide range of art classes and workshops with a strong focus on teaching beginners in a fun and relaxing way. Karen supports and encourages the student whatever their ability, and take great pleasure in facilitating the discovery of untapped drawing skills - especially for those who think they cannot draw.
