Welcome to my website!
My name is Karen Billing and I’m a self taught artist / illustrator, living and working in West Cork Ireland.
I’m a bit of a nostalgia freak and love all things vintage and historical. I gather much of my inspiration from the past
My work has been described as quirky with a touch of darkness.
I love mixed media and am enjoying incorporating more stitch and textiles into the work.
I have two major projects for 2024 , a graphic autobiography and a solo exhibition in Kinsale County Cork . If you are interested in finding out more about these projects, click the relevant headings at the top of this page and to follow the ups and downs of my art process as I work towards the exhibition and hopefully complete the autobiography!
Cheers form Karen
