Karen Dey Artist


I am a self taught artist working mainly in acrylics on canvas. I work from a small studio in our coastal Opunake home and have recently opened a small gallery next to it where I display and sell my paintings. I paint a range of subject matter  but have a love for what surrounds me in particular the sea, bird, animal life and our mountain.The diversity we have provides me with inspiration and passion to capture what I see on canvas using my own unique style.I strive to bring out the colour, light and beauty in every piece of my work and am humbled when someone else can see my vision and choose to purchase my work. I take commissions from photos and am happy to discuss potential paintings with clients. A ‘part time painter’ for many years, I am happy to now be able to dedicate more time to my passion.

At this point in time I am not setup for online sales. If you are interested in any of the paintings I have for sale or wish to commission a painting of your own please get in touch by email on the Contact page.

Thanks for visiting. Karen
