New window exhibition fun, fresh in from Karoline Rerrie!


Karoline Rerrie displays her collection of Folk Trees and Folk Art inspired 
screen prints in a window feature created especially for 
The Red Door Gallery, Edinburgh.

Karoline’s Folk Trees have walked of their pages and a little forest of them 
have sprung up overnight. She has brought the trees to life, giving them 
newly found 3 dimensional forms by combining screen printing, card, cutting,
 fabric and even a bit of sewing.

Karoline is an illustrator who creates images by hand using drawing, 
painting, silk screen printing and Japanese Gocco printing. She has 
always seen her work as a craft and strives  to maintain a handmade 
element which is what initially led her to explore printmaking. 
Karoline now designs, makes and sells a range of multiples 
including greetings cards, small books and prints. She also collaborates 
with other illustrators to produce limited edition fanzines and colouring 
in books combining different types of printing. And as if that isn’t enough 
she co-ordinates the publication of the Girls Who Draw series of 
postcard books which feature her work and that of other women illustrators.

Silk screen prints, colouring in books, cards and collaborative projects alike, 
Karoline’s works have been exhibited in The Red Door Gallery since 2009 
and this exhibition is as detailed and wondrous as her 
previous folio of works.
