Biography

Karen Furey

Karen Furey

I am a Victoria born artist and musician and have recently given up my job to devote all my time to painting. My father was a military band director and a piano player so I was fortunate enough to grow up immersed in music.

My love of art and art history started at a very young age and over the years, I have amassed a library of great art books through which I am continually inspired. To me, music and art are closely connected; when I see a great work of art, I hear music and when I hear the brilliant brassy chords of an orchestra, I see swirling colours of an abstract painting.
I do not consider myself to be one style or another as I am always looking for something new and challenging to paint.
