Karin Mear's Profile
I'm a Welsh artist, living in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, which is in Mid-Wales, UK. I have a First Class Honours Degree in Art & Design and I produce art, jewellery and craftwork from my farmhouse studio.
I'm inspired by my surroundings and much of my inspiration comes from sheep, which are everywhere in Wales!! I have a contemporary approach however and my style leans towards pop art rather than traditional.
Being an avid collector of kitsch and any quirky item which might catch my eye at an auction or carbooot sale my work often incorporates these found pieces or is inspired by them. I love vintage beads and upcycle broken necklaces by re-using the beads in my work.
All of the images used in my jewellery ranges are from my original designs and are exclusive to Baaah Design.
