Portarlington Artists/Studios

Portarlington is the home for mussel festival and the Celtic folk festival.

Portarlington is an artists hub with 6 galleries and numerous artists.

The seaside town of Portarlington is located on the north-eastern corner of the Bellarine Peninsula, 31 kilometres from the city of Geelong.

Portarlington is a popular holiday destination, offering sheltered swimming beaches and an attractive foreshore featuring a pier, BBQ and picnic areas, and a large camping area. The town's main commercial centre is on Newcombe Street and is dominated by the landmark Grand Hotel which was built in 1886. Parks and recreation reserves occupy the sloping foreshore between the shops on Newcombe Street and the beach, providing good views across the bay and towards the You Yangs mountain range north of Geelong.

Karen wants her paintings to describe a feeling, evoke a response or excite the viewer’s imagination. Her process is often one that embraces accident and ambiguity.

My interest in art has been developed through local art groups. 

I love the open space vistas across the bay, views of the countryside, nature, the changing seasons. 

I work in all mediums, oil, watercolour and acrylics.

I tend to create by whichever mood I am in. 


One minute it is drip painting on the floor in acrylics, next pastel landscapes…or portraits in oil. 


I particularly enjoy reproducing famous masterpieces in pastel (a real challenge) prepare to be surprised!

I love colour. My work ranges from realism to abstract.  At times with collage, mixed media elements.  I love painting animals, I also love challenging myself.  Painting is what I make as I become my authentic self.
