Joint Winner - Karen Stone is a paper artist living in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia. Inspired by flowers, floral pattern and the medium of pulp-paintings, her art practice weaves together fabric, memory and meaning to revisit and reflect upon the past.
Karen explained “I like scale. I like photographing a small floral pattern or roses from the garden and enlarging them. Flowers have a louder voice when painted large-scale.”
Since winning the Windmill Scholarship Karen has had a number of solo and group exhibitions in Northern NSW and awarded a Scholarship to Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina in 2014.
