b'Having worked for many years as a designer I have, in recent years, returned to my first loves, painting and printmaking.The beach at Shoreham, where I live, is an endless source of inspiration; the weather - extreme, the textures - endless, the colours and forms - a particular stimulus, a place of constant change and variety.Apart from the beach my subjects include exotic landscapes, in Morocco, Spain or up on the Sussex Downs, and studies of figures in the landscape or other imaginary situations. I have exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and Europe and have works in private collections both here and abroad.karen@karenmunck.comwww.karenmunck.cominstagram @karenmunckart'
