Karen Stamper is a British artist who creates layered pieces made out of found papers like stamps, envelopes, letters and tissue, which are finished with acrylics. Karen takes her inspiration from worn surfaces, architecture and tiled walls, as well as motifs and lettering from foreign lands. We love the artist’s vibrant colours and the visual multiplicity each of her pieces has to offer.

Karen has exhibited her work throughout the UK at galleries and art fairs in London, Cambridge, Ipswich and Cardiff.Show less
"Karen manipulates paint and collage elements adeptly to create elegant works that echo her evocative titles. Her deft compositions are masterful and pleasing, and the collage elements, particularly typography, creep up on you."
