Over the last twenty years, Karen Cater has become an artist whose work is much loved. ‘Pagan Art, Folk Art: Drawings, Painting and Lino-cuts’ charts her life from its very earliest beginnings (see Part 1). Equally if not more significantly,Part 2 of the book describes and analyses both her technical artistic development and her growing spiritual maturity as demonstrated through her art.

From the strong foundation of love for the countryside and natural world, and an equal fascination for the transience, yet recurrence of the passage of the seasons, Karen has evolved into an established artist whose work is identifiable by its integrity and subject matter, and who is known to thousands of people who own a piece she has created. Largely independent from both the ‘art world’ and the ‘commercial retail world’ Karen has created images admired by enthusiasts throughout the Pagan World and the Folk World, and often in the mainstream too. Over 600,000 Karen Cater pieces have been bought, worn or given as presents so far; the humble greetings card, the weekend t-shirt, the framed print, the books Karen has written - all give pleasure and have become favourites.

Karen’s art has a Pagan soul, mystical, but down-to-earth, encompassing the cycles of life and passage of the seasons, and deeply grounded in the landscape and wildlife, folklore and mythology of the British Isles. Here presented is the work of a lifetime, technically superb: these are designs that many have seen reproduced as cards, but which can now be appreciated in sumptuous large format illustrations as the real art they unquestionably are.
