Vintage collage art by Karen Lynch aka Leaf and Petal Design is a combination of the analogue and digital. The artist surreal landscapes derive from Kodachrome and Ektachrome color palettes, reminiscent of the 70s era. Intricate composition and great details are characteristic of her works, where the allure of the past is expressed through all the elements, from fashion to architecture.

Karen is a collage artist who loves to reinvent vintage imagery into surreal retro-futuristic landscapes.
Inspired by vintage photography, especially the colour palettes of kodachrome and ektachrome photography, Karen studied English Literature and Drama (BA (Hons) Flinders University of South Australia) and is drawn to the beautiful lines and shadows of expressionist, film noir and avante garde cinema.  Architecture, geometry and the incredible colours of nature are also frequent sources of inspiration.
Karen has undertaken commissions and licensed album cover art for various independent musicians and record labels include Universal Music and Refune Music. She was nominated for 2016 ARIA Award for Best Cover Art for Bernard Fanning's ARIA award winning album "Civil Dusk".
Karen has exhibited in Adelaide, Canada and Norway.  She has been published in the Collage Collective Co Annual 2016 and 2015, the Collage Collective Co "Green" (2016) publication and featured in Nylon Korea magazine.  Karen was chosen from over 3100 artists to be a contributor to the Annual Society 6 Artists Calendar for 2017.
Karen lives by the beach in Adelaide, South Australia.
