About Karen Coombes

I am a self-taught artist, and have been drawing and painting all my life. Early on, I showed a particular love of, and aptitude for, drawing horses, and equine subject matter remains a specialty of mine, although these days my range of subject matter includes landscapes, florals and all kinds of animals.

I have been painting commissioned dog, cat and horse portraits (with a few bunnies thrown in here and there) since about 1983. I have painted many posthumous portraits as well.

My art sometimes finds its way onto functional objects as well--wooden trinket boxes, wooden cube puzzles as examples--and I have been working on a couple of sets of matryoshkas (Russian nesting dolls), one in a Harry Potter theme, the other endangered species. I have even tried my hand at stained glass paint on glass votive candle holders.

I am a fibre arts enthusiast, spinning my own yarn and knitting up a storm. As a result of being exposed to this genre, I have applied my painting skills to creating one-of-a-kind hand-painted drop spindles. These can be viewed at TwoUncoolChicks.spaces.live.com. I also make the occasional piece of jewelry.
