My name is Karen Studd and I am living in the Yarra Valley in Victoria. I am a self taught realist artist. I like to paint anything, from birds to vintage pictures. In the last 6 years I have done over 500 paintings. Portraits, landscapes, animals, birds, vintage. You can see a large range of my art on my Facebook page. I love painting my granddaughters! I also love leatherwork and have made many things, including handbags, shoulderbags, pencil tins, key fobs and earrings.
