Kareena is a Sydney born, London based artist, designer and flâneuse, who collects fine bone china tea sets, but prefers to drink coffee.
She has an unhealthy obsession with dangerously sharp 2B pencils, which may or may not be associated with her perfectionist Virgo tendencies… and her pencils, along with a yearning to escape to a world of make believe, lead her to create whimsical illustrative work with a sense of isolation and bittersweet nostalgia.
Having studied design at the College of Fine Arts (UNSW), Kareena’s work often combines traditional drawing with contemporary graphic techniques, with which she has the pleasure of working across a range of commercial projects for the music, fashion and advertising industries.
She loves the word ‘elephant’ (isn’t it just the best word ever?), her Italian greyhound called Pelle and visiting the Natural History Museum.
