Karen Boatwright

Karen Boatwright’s primary practice is focused around painting, she is inspired by nature, cycles of time, transitions of the seasons and observations on our co-existence with animals.

She is also an unstoppable maker and re-inventor, using what is close to hand whether it be vintage finds, broken objects or textile fragments––all sorts are co-opted in this urge to find fresh forms and new uses.

Her crafting skills are multiple, from paper mache and mending, to quilting and dyeing.

This necklace collection she has created for Frank re-uses a variety of milk glass beads collected from broken and damaged jewellery from the 1920s and 1930s when the Art Deco movement made them popular.

Karen lives and works in Whitstable, Kent.
