Karen lives on The Wirral, which is a beautiful county with many fabulous places to photograph and doubts very much that she will live any where else. So why does she take photographs? It all comes down to her Art teacher Mr. Macdonald (Mr. Mac) who in senior school persuaded her Mum that she COULD draw. Karen then went on to Art college and studied foundation Art, Graphic Design and Interior Design.
In foundation Art she developed her photographic skills on a Pentax K1000 camera, developing her own black and white film, which is where she fell in love with black and white photography. Over the years Karen has picked up and put down several cameras including her Dadís old Ilford, a Zenith TTL, a Canon, a Nikon D60, a Nikon D3100 and now a Nikon D7000 and is sure there will be more cameraís in her future but just at the moment the Nikon is the camera of choice.
Karen is an award winning photographer and has displayed her work in Times Square NY and in local art galleries and exhibitions.She has recently started her business SPIKEY MOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY and can be found in art fairs and artisan markets on the Wirral and in Cheshire. She hopes you take the time to look through her work, like and leave comments and most importantly find something that is perfect for your walls at home.
