Beauty of the Wild is an exhibition of drawings by South Australian visual artist, Karen Haskard. The exhibition celebrates the beauty of nature and animals in the wild. Karen has concentrated on the colours and raw beauty of magnificent wild animals such as lions, zebras, penguins and meerkats. Karen focuses on the faces of the animals to show the personality and loving bond that exists between Mum and baby even in the wild. Her drawings bring the animals to life on the page:
“When I draw animals, I bring them to life by focusing on their unique colours and the depth of their eyes.”
Karen’s drawings are created by hand with colour pencil, graphite and charcoal on paper. Her passion for creativity and art are important to her and she feels most at peace and at home when she is drawing.
“I’m excited and honoured to be chosen to exhibit my wild animals at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Hopefully the animals can bring a bit of colour and fun and brighten the day of the children and parents too.”
