Karin has painted professionally for over 25 years. She has spent years studying calligraphy, decorative painting, assorted fibre arts, drawing, book binding , mixed media and most extensively watercolour.

To her this is what watercolour is all about. Best known for her watercolours, her work varies from landscape to still life to figurative.
