"For my father’s birthday I asked Karen if she would paint his ancestral family home in the west of Ireland as a gift that would remain in the family for generations to come. The painting Karen created was incredible, it perfectly captured the old family home nestled in the west of Ireland landscape and little details within the painting keep jumping out every time we look at it. The painting now takes pride of place in the family home and my father states he never feels far from home when he looks up at it. I would recommend Karen for any type of commissioned work as her bright colours contrasting against the traditional whitewashed family home really brought home the feeling of the home for those of us lucky enough to have stayed there."

"I first came across Karen's work at her first exhibition in Smock Alley in February 2022. I was really taken by her style and work so much so that I commissioned Karen to paint one of our son's photographs of the Pidgeon House."

‘Karen has produced two paintings for us in the past two years. They have brought to life two plain painted walls. We found the local interest elements of the paintings attractive’

"When I found out my pals were getting married, only one gift came to mind – a commissioned piece by Karen Lee. The couple are very much “of” where they live so Karen and I schemed about a suitable representation of Skerries. She really listened to me when I described the couple – their likes, lifestyle and interests – and went away with her brief to work on the windmills. The end result is best summed up by the lovely message I got from them when they opened it: “We just opened your present and it’s STUNNING! It’s so beautiful…we love it, thanks so much., it’s us.""

"Karen is my go to for all occasions, whether I want to add colour and creativity to my own walls or for special gifts. Her artwork is so unique and anyone who sees it in my home or receives it as a gift always comments on how beautiful it is. From her online shop to bespoke pieces it is always stunning!"
"From the moment we first saw Karen's work at an exhibition, we fell in love with her bold use of colour and her unique layered linear style. We asked if she would be open to creating a commissioned painting of a city we were very fond of in France, and she couldn't have been nicer to deal with. She provided lots of options to fit within our budget and provided suggestions that would work well with the room we were hoping to hang it up in. Once she had the painting done she checked in with us to ensure we were happy (which of course we were beyond happy with it!) before finalising it and organising to get it framed. The painting is stunning, she even added some flecks of gold leaf to which catches beautifully in the morning light - everyone comments on it and we couldn't be happier to have something so unique created by someone so unique! Huge thank you Karen, we absolutely LOVE it!"

"Karen's unique artistic style coupled with her beautiful energy is what makes her stand out. The piece I commissioned her to do is pride of place in my sitting room and brightens up the darkest of days!"
