Karen Brouwer

My name is Karen Brouwer and I live in Tyabb which is situated on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. I have been teaching Decorative painting for 20 years and infact still have some ladies that began painting with me still coming to classes. I teach locally and interstate within Australia, I have taught in New Zealand and I am lucky enough to come every year to the USA to teach. I have taught at SDP conventions and currently teach at the Creative Painting Convention in Las Vegas as well as with chapters nationally.
My artwork is known for its use of mother of pearl and Paua. I tend to use mixed media when using Mother of Pearl using texture paste and other techniques. I also love to paint realistic animals and birds embellishing them sometimes with the use of pearl.
My husband Harry laser cuts all my woodwork which has let me creatively come up with some wonderful new designs. I love the 3D look which the laser can help create and this is shown in my new projects
I love to travel teach , meet people and share my love of painting.
My new website will be up and running beginning of July
