Karen Wiseman Australian Artist
Karen Wiseman (°1958, Victoria, Australia) Surrealism ,Realism,
Mixed Media, Artist
I Work in Mixed Media ,Collage, Coloured Pencil, Graphite Acrylic,Watercolour, Oils.
My art is inspired by the rich fauna of my surroundings.
My Art is produced between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, directly responding to the surrounding environment and everyday experiences with nature as a starting point.
Often these are framed instances which would go unnoticed in their original context. In my surrealism work I can easily imagine my own interpretation without being hindered by the reality.
The energy in my work the emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important to my creation of the work.
My art is my visual language.
My works seem juxtaposed realism versus surrealism and I believe this is my homage to my twin sister Ruth.
I love both the surrealism and the realism in my works, both complementing and entwining into each other.

I have online mentor-ship in my techniques and how to create beautiful abstracts, these online courses are absolutely jammed packed with information, and its all about having fun.
My husband supports my art in many ways, We always have the most fun when we are on adventure for subject material, research we call it.
It was my husband that encouraged me to further my art education and so I went to Tafe and did a diploma in visual arts passing with merit, the diploma created a pathway for me to go to University to gain my degree in Visual Arts as a mature age student.
