Painter from the Heart - Karen Curran - Illustrator

Welcome to the website of Karen Curran, painter from the heart - illustrator and storyteller.
Based in the Blue Mountains, NSW Australia.

As a graphic designer, I have created many beautiful publications for clients over the years. However, in 2016 I wrote my first inspirational book, completely illustrated throughout by me. It is called, ‘Beyond the Red Shoes’ – based on the Tree of Life. It is a journey of self-discovery through paintings and words, inspiring the reader to find what is holding them back, thereby re-discovering life in new ways. It’s inspirational to many in all kinds of ways.

One reader wrote recently, 
‘Thank you for the opportunity to have and hold your diamond in my hands – it’s full of your heart and soul.’

My inspirational paintings are available as
cards, prints or within the book. I will be adding more from time to time.

I am now accepting bookings also for individual, inspirational and
intuitive paintings.

‘The heart is the essence of who we are.’
