Featured Artist – Karen Appleton

This morning was one of those mornings I love, when I see a really special piece of artwork. There, amongst a sea of pins on Pinterest, shone out a perfect square gift, tantalisingly tied with a generous blue satin ribbon – I just had to find out who painted it. Karen Appleton is the talent behind it and many other stunning still life oil paintings, which you can see on her website.

Her use of colour in the mouthwatering food and enchanting accessories she paints is spellbinding and, what makes a visit to her website even more absorbing, are the stage by stage images showing a painting come to life as it nears completion.

Definitely recommend visiting Karen’s website to see more of her amazing work: karenappleton.com

And to keep up to date with her latest works and classes, there’s also her blog.
