Capturing young children in moments of endearing expression as they discover and explore imaginary worlds, Kareena’s drawings are populated by mysterious giants, playful pets and friendly forest creatures. Inspired by personal memories, dreams and childhood nostalgia, as well as family photo albums and rediscovered super-eight films, her work has a playful, often whimsical spirit.

Evoking a delicate balance between isolation and companionship, as well as yearning and delight in long lost moments of escape, Kareena’s artworks offer the viewer entry into a world of make believe. Like the moments of delight they portray, her artworks capture something which should be treasured.

Kareena’s work has gained acclaim in popular culture through inclusion in the prestigious annual ‘Curvy’ international art exhibition, the Semi-Permanent 2008 Kids Today international art exhibition and has been published in magazines such as Yen and Frankie.
