Born and raised in the town of Wallasey in the North West of England close to the City of Liverpool. Karl is currently being inspired to create his art while touring Europe in a Motor Home after moving to the Dordogne in the South West of France in 2017. He draws inspiration by the photography of his wife Joanne and by the artwork of his Great Grandfather. Other influences come from living in the great outdoors and the cultural diversity of European life, from its historic towns and villages to its beautiful natural landscapes and waterscapes.
Being self-taught after studying at home throughout 2012 and 2013, he restarted in 2020 as part of an Art Therapy Course undertaken during Chemotherapy for Stage 4 Cancer. Creating art played a large part in helping to come through the treatment and after recovering it has now become a continuing passion.
His medium of choice is Acrylic Paint on Canvas, using scale drawing to create accurate compositions and depth along with mixing beautiful and vibrant colours. His art is displayed in Private Collections across America & Europe including the UK and France.
“It is such a great feeling to have found something so good and creative coming out of such a difficult time”
