Marine art by Karen Talbot is a perfect balance of art and science
While visiting the House of Fins' SPLASH event this past weekend in Greenwich, I couldn't help but to stop and check out the display of colorful art created by Karen Talbot. Displayed were several drawings and paintings of clownfish, angelfish, starfish and many other marine organisms.
After speaking with Karen, I quickly learned that her art is inspired by what she experiences when diving as well as the importance of conservation in our oceans. Her work includes watercolor, pen & ink and acrylic and Karen explained that she examines these fish in great detail which really helps to create detail and realism in her work.
Pictured above is a myriad of information she assembled which explains detail regarding the anatomy of the fish as well as some interesting information about its habitat.

Here is Karen herself, explaining the insightful process behind her artwork.
