Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Karen Neale at Stamford Arts Centre

Karen Neale: Artist based in Stamford, sketching the world around her.
"My passion is sketching and painting the world around me in my annotated, sketchbook diaries. Standing in situ I draw with a black biro as much as I can of what is going on around me, adding colour with my small field box of watercolours. The notes I’ve made around the perimeter are  of observations made whilst sketching."

I am one of the founders of ESCartists in collaboration with my artist friends Eve Marshall and Cathi Prince. Escartists is a new creative group planning an escape from the ordinary by organising Artist markets and exhibitions promoting extraordinary workmanship and talent. I will be sharing details of all 12 artists taking part in our 2015 events on this blog. Feel free to share, reblog and also ask any questions you may have via the Escartists website. Thanks :-)


  1. This kind of art is new to me - sketching and coloring on the spot with notes in handwriting. The ones I saw look beautiful and vintage!

    1. She is very good and her work is very different to many other artists :-)
