Originally from San Francisco, Karen works primarily in acrylics on canvas and her art is inspired by her life experiences and the complex world around her. Her paintings are infused with rich colours, textures, and markings that fill the canvas with energy and light. Her latest series merges her love of textiles, patterns, design and nature using a mid-century palette that includes deep tones of turquoise, olive green, gold, burnt orange and pink.
Karen is a juried member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and her art has been in numerous local and international exhibitions. She was recently chosen as the featured artist at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island and was recently in a two-artist exhibition at the Kay Meek Arts Centre in West Vancouver.
