Karoline Rerrie West Midlands, United Kingdom
Karoline is an illustrator who creates images by hand using drawing and screen printing. Her work is characterised by bold outlines, bright colours and pattern so is well suited to screen print. As well as printmaking she is inspired by folk arts, crafts and traditional costumes from around the world and Eastern Europe in particular.
Karoline sees her work as a craft and wants to maintain a handmade element which is what originally drew her to printmaking. She now designs and makes a range of hand printed products including greetings cards and limited edition prints. She regularly exhibits these in galleries, at print fairs and craft fairs around the UK.
Alongside creating her own prints and working on commissions Karoline also runs screen printing workshops for children, young people and adults. Since specialising in screen printing she has delivered sessions in schools, galleries and art centres as well as some more unusual locations including a folly, stately home, shopping centre and marquee.
