Karen D’Oliveira

Karen was born in Middlesbrough with very strong family roots. Youngest of five sisters, art and crafts featured strongly in the sisters upbringing. She came to Portugal in 1986 where she met and married her Portuguese husband, always living in the Tavira area. Her love affair with painting began 10 years ago inspired by the wonderful light the Algarve has to offer all year round. Painting for pleasure in the earlier years under the guidance of Fonseca Martins, Karen soon branched out to other galleries along the Algarve. Fascinated by people, Karen just has to paint characters - whether its dancer’s, singers, nudes, couples. For her, a painting isn’t complete without a person or a dog in it! Catching expressions and movement is her aim. Karen has 2 children, 2 cats and 2 dogs.
