Country of context
Born in Germany in 1927, Karin Schepers studied at Kolner Werkschulen from 1946 to 1953, and worked at the Kolner Presse (print atelier) from 1952 to 1953. In 1955, she moved to Melbourne and then in 1956, to Adelaide. Schepers began teaching at the South Australian School of Art in 1959, where she produced about 50 lithographs from 1950 to 1958 and between 1960 and 1964 about 40 etchings. In addition, she worked in woodcut, silkscreen and produced some paintings. As a result of her increasing interest in art education and art history, Schepers stopped producing prints in 1964.
Schepers work was included in the Cincinnati Colour Lithography Biennale, USA, 1958; Australian Print Survey, 1963-64; Print Council of Australia Print Prize Exhibition, 1967; Printmaking in Australia 1812-1972 (historical survey, Newcastle City Art Gallery, NSW).
