Karen Osborn

Hi! I’m Karen. I’m an artist, tutor and horsewoman based on the Sunshine Coast.

I’m extremely blessed to be living where my studio overlooks my small herd. It’s a short step out the door to be invited into their space and interact, and I often steal down to the paddock and lie with them in the magic of a moonlit night.

I work predominantly in pastels, and look to express the fleeting moment, the intangible, the essence of the equine.

My work is in private collections internationally, and I have been fortunate enough to exhibit in international equine events, such as FieraCavalli in Verona in 2021. Recently I was featured by Paard Verzameld in the Netherlands “BitCap” equestrian magazine.

I was born with a wide open heart and I took it to the horses: the horses said “use your art and show who we really are.”

Karen contributed the artwork Rio for our 2023 exhibition.
