Karen Bohan Back

I have always enjoyed strong colours, seascapes and the South West coast/countryside; having been born in Plymouth and lived most of my life in Devon. I started becoming interested in Naïve Art a couple of years ago and was inspired by other artist’s work to ‘have a go’ and develop my own style. Coupled with our recent purchase of a canal boat, the canals and their industrial heritage also provide a very different source of subject matter; hence the appearance of many canalside houses and boats in my work! I mainly use acrylics and marker pens in my work but have also started to use pastels through some tutorial sessions held at my local art group.
