Karen Beattie is a visual artist practising in Ullapool, north-west Scotland. She graduated from Alberta College of Art + Design in Western Canada in 2013.
She is interested in what it feels like to live now, amidst the excesses of 21st Century consumption and commodification, information and misinformation. Her life seems governed by banal superficiality, and a slight sense of unease.
Influences include The World Wide Web and the Rococo.
