Hello my name is Karen Williams & welcome to my website.
After years of working in various mediums I feel I have at last found my true vocation, I have been working full time as a sculptor in my garden studio, in Derbyshire since 2002.
My work is all self taught and I deliberately avoided training so I could develop my own individual style. My sculptures are all 'one-offs' with no two identical. No moulds or patterns of any kind are used & no castings are made, so you are guaranteed to be getting a truly original highly collectable work of art.
My sculptures aren't meant to show an accurate representation, but more the spirit & character of the subject, with a touch of humour. I feel I have achieved my goal if I manage to put a smile on someone's face when they view my artwork.
My sculptures are different from what most people think of as traditional outdoor sculpture. I work with wire & a variety of recycled material, including old jeans, t-shirts, curtains etc. The material is impregnated with a special established tried & tested resin that amalgamates & fortifies the material, which when it dries strengthens & hardens the sculpture making them suitable for both indoor & outdoor use all year round.
Although you may imagine the sculpture to be delicate they are in fact quite robust - but please be aware that although they are fine outside all year round, they don't like being left in a puddle.
I hand paint the sculptures to look like metal, paying great attention to detail for example all the standing faeries are wearing large pants under their dresses. Each sculpture takes me around 15 - 20 hours to make.
If you would like to buy a sculpture or have a piece commissioned please don't hesitate to contact me. All of my sculptures are individually named and come with a thank you card signed and dated by myself.All my sculptures have free P&P to the UK unless otherwise stated.
As I work in my studio, I was kept company by my lurcher Fraiser who has long been my inspiration for my dog sculptures. He has now sadly passed away but has sent me a little friend in the way the ever lovely, Stan... The Haerie Hooligan
