About the Artist

Karen was born and raised in Southern California. Out of high school she attended UCLA as a French major. It was there she discovered Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, William Morris and Alphonse Mucha and the dormant artist was awakened.

She left UCLA and pursued an independent study program at El Camino College. She conducted life drawing sessions in her apartment and surrounded herself with art by working as a framer and in a local art gallery. As a framer she was introduced to many types of decorative papers and they began to make their way into her paintings. Soon the papers took over completely as she developed a highly specialize form of collage she calls “Paper Mosaics”.

As she grew as an artist, she became interested in also working with Lucite. This enabled her to have more flexibility when working with interior designers by installing the Lucite as panels in doors or using them as partitions.

She is currently entering the licensing arena with her new work designed especially for use on products.
