Mixed media artist Karen Frankel's exhibition DRAWN is a reference to the inevitable marks and lines that appear in her ever-present sketch book, thumbnail sketches and final works. She draws inspiration from the world around her - flowers from daily walks and views from travels to the Pilbara and New Zealand especially.

Born in Zimbabwe, Frankel grew up surrounded and influenced by the art of her father, artist Eli Zagoria. Moving to Western Australia in 1984, she was captivated by the rugged beauty of the landscape. As a largely self-taught artist, Frankel broadened her arts practice by taking part in intensive workshops with many renowned artists around Australia including Ian De Souza, Tony Smibert and Judith White. Attracted to the shapes of colour, dark and light, texture and the spaces created between and around subjects, Frankel's mixed media process involves using a variety of paper, inks and acrylic to form rich layers which she then draws onto. This produces vibrant, intense works which illustrate her overriding philosophy - both as an artist and teacher - that the pleasure is in the process, regardless of the end result.

Frankel has exhibited extensively across WA, developing a following of devoted workshop participants and collectors. She is renowned for her ability to teach beginners in a fun and relaxing way and on Sunday's throughout the exhibition, 24 Nov – 22 Dec, Frankel will present talks and workshops at Mundaring Arts Centre (Bookings essential visit
