Karoline is an illustrator and printmaker based in Birmingham. Her work is characterised by bold outlines, pattern and bright colours so it is particularly suited to screen printing. She creates a range of hand printed products including greetings cards, limited edition prints, tote bags and tea towels.
Karoline is inspired by screen printing and she enjoys working with layers of flat, bold colour to create her prints. She is also interested in folk art, craft and costumes from around the world and eastern Europe in particular.
First Karoline draws the artwork by hand and then she creates the separate layers for each different colour. Using either simple hand cut paper stencils or more complex photo stencils, Karoline then carefully screen prints her work in small limited editions at her home studio in Birmingham.
