Karen Treleaven, Seaside Memories
Karen is very much inspired by her surroundings and personal experience of the natural world. Although the majority of her work originates from hand drawn images in pen, watercolour and ink, she loves to experiment with new techniques including laser cutting, screen printing and creating digital illustrations.
Seaside Memories is inspired by a collection of people’s memories at the seaside. These illustrated memories flow from one triggering and merging with the next. The metamorphic illustrations echo the fluidity and dream-like quality of memories. The immersive perspective encourages the reader to read as though the thoughts are their own.
