Karen Smith is a Canterbury artist who is originally from Perth, Australia. She now lives in Methven in the heart of the Southern Alps, with her Kiwi husband. She is a full time artist with her own gallery in Methven and is an established professional landscape painter of both realistic and contemporary art.
Karen works predominantly in oils from her studio in Methven. The New Zealand landscape is her great inspiration, the forever changing light and moods, the brooding skies of the Southerly and Nor’west winds.
As well as gallery representation, she also produces work on commission. She has been fortunate to win many awards and has held numerous solo and group exhibitions in New Zealand and overseas.
