Karen Hammat

Karen paints her vibrant abstracts and portraits in her spiral, cob studio in Yankalilla on the Fleurieu Peninsula. She says of her abstract works, "My work is not about painting things in nature but about painting the nature of things. it is an attempt to convey the essential energy that is the life force in all things". She was a finalist in the Glover Prize in 2021 and her work features in private collections in both Australia and Europe.
