Karen Foley - Fine Art

Artist Profile & Summary of Public Exhibitions - Karen Foley b. January 31st 1959.

Born and raised in Townsville, Nth Queensland Australia. Karen began painting at a young age and in recognition of her talent made a career as a respected artist. Popularity of her art led to the opening of her own gallery/studio in the city mall in 2005 and in Idalia in 2010. The Stack, aptly named after the nearby Heritage landmark Chimney Stack.

Karen now works from her private studio and showcases her art and contact via this web-site

Karen has developed a trademark in painting her favourite subject ‘flowers’ and her art is easily recognized. In celebrating year 2000 prints of her work were released by a leading Australian publisher who could see huge benefits in marketing her as a floral artist, typifying the tropical beauty of richly coloured flowers. One subject matter, frangipani, and subsequent signature work of hers, became the best selling print in Australia for several consecutive years, titled ‘Spring’. While she has a traditional style and technique, she enjoys coordinating colour and mood to develop the subject, creating an ambience of elegance.

To date, over 200 of Karen’s paintings have been reproduced in print and distributed worldwide. While the prints are widely available Karen takes great pride and joy in personally handing over the original paintings by dealing direct with her customers.

 

"My wish is for you to enjoy the painting as much as I have enjoyed creating it".......Karen
