My Name is Karen O'Keeffe and I have been creating in various different mediums all my life.
Whether it be art, jewellery, fashion or decor, I've continually been fascinated in the elaborate, the imaginative and the futuristic, so I have quite an eclectic taste ( in music as well ).
With a background in Graphic Design, I find I've always been drawn to the "intricate & decorative" styles of art, which are inevitably more time consuming but I find ultimately more rewarding.
The periods of art/style and themes that I am mostly inspired by are :-
Egyptian - Baroque - Gothic - Art Nouveau - Ukiyo-e Japanese Art
Game of Thrones & Sci-Fi
After designing and creating original, one of a kind jewellery for the past few years,
I have now extended my artwork creations to include beaded art assemblage.........
Original 3 dimensional artworks that combine various techniques of painting, beadwork and wirework.
Please take a look at my Facebook page for my latest creations and where they can be viewed.
In 2016 I collaborated with other Mandurah artists to form Vivid Art Collective and currently display my artwork
at our Vivid Gallery in Mandurah, Western Australia.
