KARENZA JACKSON has been working creatively for most of her life. Growing up in the countryside, her work tends to reflect her love of the great outdoors environment and the flora and fauna within it. Sketching outside is an important part of her working practice, gathering information to take back to the studio in her garden. When she is unable to spend time out in the landscape, there are other favourite subjects of the everyday, still lifes, garden landscapes and flowers. Much of her work consists of monotypes which are one off prints with just an edition of one. In essence they are paintings made with a comprehensive armoury of printmaking techniques. It is a very flexible medium and as Karenza enjoys working in other mediums such as painting, she is able to incorporate these in her print making. Being of a contemporary and representational nature, much of her work takes her on an experimental journey, moving her work forward and keep it fresh. Karenza has a BA Hons Fine Art degree and regularly exhibits her work in and around East Anglia. Complementing her studio practice, Karenza has also run a comprehensive programme of creative workshops for many years, teaching adults, children and groups with special needs in venues in Suffolk and Essex.
