Kara Strachan is a self-taught Southport born artist. Her distinctive style and subject are inspired from her many years of floristry running her own successful business in London.
A move to Staffordshire allowed her appreciation of old English gardens and her fascination with ancient woodlands to develop. At her happiest wandering through woodlands with canvas and acrylic paint, depicting in her paintings the seasonal atmosphere that nature creates.
Since 2007, Kara has been based in her studio gallery holding solo exhibitions selling her work both nationally and internationally. Outside of the studio she has been tasked with creating anamorphic 3D artworks for multinational companies, museums and educational establishments.
Kara also travels the British coastline and interprets the atmosphere of the sea and skylines capturing the mood on canvas in vibrant acrylics and brush strokes. Her love of the coast, woodlands and flowers is beautifully represented through her bold atmospheric paintings.
