Though all of Karen's paintings are based on real places, it is more the memory of the place. She does not want to paint a literal view. Many are inspired by the night-time or dusk when everything seems mysterious, especially under the dream-like quality of a full moon.
Karen uses water-based media and the paintings are built up in layers – lifting off and laying down marks, using whatever methods she needs to create the look she is after. Karen paints intuitively until the picture looks right.
