Karl is trained in Three Dimentional Design and worked for many years with some of the top architectural, interior design and graphic design companies in the UK and USA. As well as detailed pen and ink drawings he also produces abstract pieces made of thousands of rolled paper discs. A range of tones and effects are made by increasing or decreasing the number of paper strips in a disc. These can be manipulated by pushing them outward or sinking them in. This affects the viewers perception by creating light, shade and shadows. The pieces are abstract but for Karl highly personal where he is able to explore emotions, review life events and travel on imagined journeys.
