Karen has been a painter most of her life, and attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and the Night School at the School of Worcester Art Museum. She works with oil on canvas, paper, clay and plaster, and also fabrics. Her work strikes an ethereal chord in the viewer, and something like a distant memory or dream. Karen created a whopping 3 x 50 foot mural at the Jones Immersion School in Greensboro which is still seen today. Karen's work hs been shown at Wilkes Gallery in North Wtilkesboro, North Carolina, and in the Best of NC/SC Artists at ELDER Gallery in Charlotte, NC.
