The Karen Sinclair Willis Gallery
Original art, limited edition prints & gifts
I have been a professional painter for 20 years now. I paint in all different kinds of media, and different styles depending on what music I am listening to. I am most well known for painting bright and colourful sea and landscapes.
Ltd edition prints
I have a large range of limited edition prints. It is an affordable way to own some wonderful art, and the glicee prints produced now are of the highest quality – guaranteed for 100 years. Sent out unframed and in a tube to protect it.

In Oct last year, I took on a new studio in Newcastle. So, I have decided to hold my open studio event here this year. It will be on Fri 9 Dec 12-5pm and Sat 10 Dec 11-6pm. I have new work to see, will be doing a painting demonstration at 2pm on the Sat. Look forward to seeing you there.
Hi, my name is Karen, and I am an artist. I originally come from the Shetland Islands, living just 100 metres from the sea. I have always been drawn to colour and dramatic scenery, especially seascapes. I have been painting and drawing since I was young, selling paintings to tourists in the local shops. About 20 years ago I became a professional artist. My work was taken to the Affordable Art Fair in London, which was my first real break.
I use bright, vibrant colours (usually) and love to paint, draw, sketch, doodle, but yes I must keep focused. I use a wide variety of media. My career highlight to date came when I presented HRH Prince Charles with one of my paintings, and subsequently received a wonderful letter to say that it is now hanging in Clarence House. I cheekily asked if Charles would invite me to his next watercolour exhibition. Anyway, I have recently fulfilled a lifelong ambition to open my own gallery which I did before Christmas. Following lockdown, we closed the gallery to concentrate online, but you can come and view work at my studio by appointment.
