I’m Karen Frankel – artist, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, friend and proud owner of Karen Frankel Art Studio in beautiful Perth, Western Australia.
OK, deep breath, I’m writing a drawing book – “Get Drawing”. It is based on my experiences introducing over 1000 Non-drawers to observation and drawing. It is a practical and often humorous guide to starting out on your drawing journey. It will be full of easy to understand information, exercises and demonstration photos.
Now that you and the rest of the internet know I would be happy to answer any questions or even help you with drawing difficulties (within reason – I do have lessons to teach, a book to write and a business to run Karen Frankel Art Studio). You never know, you may end up in the book.
It’s all happening and full on and I’m delighted with how it’s coming along. I hope to update this blog with snippets from the book, creative insights, stories from classroom amusements, exercises and observations.
