"A picture represents a thousand words." Art is a means of communication that can represent a message in a way that words cannot. It is a complex process of choosing the right mediums, colours and inspiration to convey your message to the world. The more knowledge and experience you have with creating the more effectively you can convey your message.

Karriena has many different artists that she draws inspiration from usually centered on colour, composition or use of texture as inspiration. A few artists’ work that she loves looking at and are inspired by are Jackson Pollock (inspired by his use of texture), Jackie Saccoccio (for her use of blending and colour) and Kirsten Jackson (love her use of colour and composition).
