Karen is a multi-media artist and photographer. She often combines printmaking, collage and photographic techniques. Nature and the flow of life permeate her work. Her subject matter and materials are found in the natural world - the human figure, the woods, the weather. Materials often include hand-made papers, birch bark, wasp nest, and feathers. She has shown her art work on the east and west coasts and is in numerous collections including the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Collection in New Jersey.
Karen graduated, an art major, from Scripps College in California and earned a MA in art education at NYU. She has taught elementary and high school art and private classes for children and adults. For twenty years she had a custom tile business designing and hand glazing tile work for clients across the country. She lives and works in Stamford, CT and spends parts of each year in Vermont.
