About Karen Richardson

My professional painting journey began in 1986 when I started exhibiting my watercolours. Over the years, almost 600 of my original paintings have found their way into private and corporate art collections in nineteen countries. My paintings capture moments of tranquility and encourage viewers to pause and reflect on the astonishing but fragile beauty of our world. Favourite subjects include dramatic scenery and close-up details of Nature, especially flowers and stones of all descriptions.

In 2005 I began teaching watercolour and perspective drawing at art schools, galleries and in my own studio. I enjoy showing students how to design and build their own paintings using just primary colours and a back-to-basics approach.

My art instruction book, Watercolour Toolbox: Essentials for Painting Success, was published in 2013, and has won four international book awards.

I designed my own web site www.karenrichardson.ca which includes galleries of original paintings and painting demonstrations, as well as photos and stories about my classes, trips and artistic activities.

I grew up near Algonquin Park in northern Ontario, Canada and, as an adult, have been privileged to explore wilderness landscapes throughout North America and abroad. My husband and I lead active lives in which gardening, hiking, snowmobiling, ATVing, motorcycling and RV touring provide unique inspiration for my artwork.
