karen stamper

Karen Stamper is a multimedia artist who creates layered and textural paintings inspired by her travels. Architectural shapes, patterned motifs and vibrant colours all come together to form Karen’s abstract paintings. Responding to seascapes, urban settings and the weathering of buildings, Karen’s bold and dynamic style captures the spirit of a place. Karen adapts acrylic paintings with elements of collage to further abstract the appearance of her work. At times, typography and subtle signs of found imagery come into play and work to develop the narrative of the paintings.

Karen Stamper’s Early Life and Inspiration

Karen was born and raised in Yorkshire and attended Art College in Bradford, West Yorkshire. After studying, Karen left the UK and embarked on a life of journeying overseas. Viewing travelling as a process of observing, learning and collecting, Karen’s art documents her life’s adventures. Karen’s titles allude to her travels, and whether reflecting the Port of Timbuktu or capturing the journey of being On The Move, Karen reflects the excitement of discovery.


Karen’s work has evolved over the years, however the celebration of the great outdoors remains central to her art. Her early series, Urban Shorelines combines painting with abstract collage to create an expressive and energetic collection of pieces. More recently, Karen has started experimenting with black and white media in her Allotments series. Characterised by sharp lines and abstract shapes, this monochromatic series demonstrates the versatility of Karen’s mixed media approach.
