Adults only subscription services are proving to be a lucrative business for many. Technology has enabled anyone with a phone, camera and internet to have a global reach from the humblest of homes and make some serious coin.
The nun only has eyes for one, she has her own subscription service, more popular, far reaching and a lot richer. Her subscription service is obvious.
I have messed it up a bit by placing the ankh (Egyptian symbol for everlasting life) on the end of her rosary beads. Her hands in the position of Star Trek’s. Live long and prosper to add a bit of humour.
About the Artist
Karen’s style is expressionism-distortion, inspired by artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Modigliani and Picasso. She has collectors locally, nationally, and internationally over her 20-year art career.
Expressionism isn’t for everyone and I enjoy the quirky, unusual and weirdness of life which I think you can see in my work. In my early years I was a punk and that mentality still sits with me the non-conformity etc. I want to make people talk, sometimes shock but mostly smile and laugh when they view my work. You won’t find me painting landscapes I need to have an opinion.
This drive for bucking the system stems from her love of punk music and her thirst for the unusual, which in turn creates disruption and gives people the invitation to view life through a different lens. She leaves stories half told on a canvas to make an impression and invite the observer to create their own story about what they see.
