Karoline is an illustrator and printmaker based in Birmingham. She has specialised in screen printing for over ten years and creates joyful, vibrant, folk art inspired prints. Her work is characterised by bold outlines, pattern and bright colours so it is particularly suited to the technique of screen printing.
Karoline is inspired by screen printing and 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 makes the separate layers for each different colour. Using either photo stencils or simple hand cut stencils, Karoline then carefully screen prints each different layer of colour to create the finished prints. She usually works in just two or three colours and produces most of her prints in small, limited editions.
