Wandering the world as a child, Karen grew up looking for a place of peace. She attended Julian Ashton Art School before finishing an Honours French Degree from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and a Professional A Teaching Certificate from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Her competencies include drawing, oils, watercolours, acrylics and mixed media. Pursuing professionalism, she helped organize the collective “Devenir” in 2016. Having learned to search within she now endeavours to inspire more caring concern for our world through her work by blending religious and scientific thought. The two form an alliance, a divine dance, in which everything has its place. Her work forms part of many collections internationally.
We live in a fractured world. This chaos is evident in my work. In between the rivulets of paint and the textural accidents I choose colours and forms to suggest a landscape where beauty continues to reign. She is essential to the survival of humanity.
