Karen Heywood Dip AD, FRSA

Karen has drawn and painted since her childhood, and after leaving school she attended Stockport College of Art. At Leicester College of Art, where she studied for her Dip AD, Karen was awarded a bursary by the Royal Society of Arts as a result of winning a national competition.

Karen has illustrated over 50 children's books and worked as an animator on Rainbow, Duckula, Dangermouse and The BFG for Cosgrove Hall Films.

For the last few years, Karen has been working in her studio in Brook Street, Glossop.

Her main interest lies in figurative work, but she also enjoys painting atmospheric landscapes, mostly inspired by walking in the High Peak.
