Karen Rae graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1994 with a Bdes(Hons) in Jewellery and Metalwork. She has taught secondary school Art and design for 17 years in Angus and Dundee.
She specialises in producing the most highly detailed pen and ink drawings. Inspired by her design background, all drawings must feature a strong sense of balance. The composition of her somewhat illustrative images is always key to the success of the finished work, yet sometimes the image is allowed to develop on the paper without planning, a form of controlled 'designing' as the image emerges.
Karen has a very keen interest in timepieces and objects which measure time, particularly astrolabes and planispheres, layering drawn mechanical workings in elaborate and imagined arrangements and embellishing to add further points of interest. She likes to incorporate such things as plant forms, birds and other such
creatures to create a visual reference to nature's relationship with the concept and passing of time.
