OK, deep breath, I’m writing a drawing book – “Get Drawing”. It is
based on my experiences introducing over 1000 Non-drawers to observation
Now that you and the rest of the internet knows I would be happy to

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

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
