Karina is a multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on Fashion Illustration, Surface Pattern Design and Commercial Artwork. She works with digital media and combines this with original artwork.

Karina’s background is in Fashion Design. She studied a BA in Fashion Design with Marketing at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UAL), graduating with 1st class honours for main study in 2002. She also has a BTEC Diploma in Art and Design, from which she received a Distinction.

Karina’s entrepreneurial nature previously led to her setting up a clothing label, a boutique in Camden Town and an online fashion company. She has since returned to her passions of working more directly with the visual arts. Her influences include 1960’s imagery, tribal art and the impressionist painters.
