VISUAL ARTISTS OF WELLAND – MEMBER
Karen has always found comfort in communicating through drawing and painting. From her earliest memories, she has been creating art as a form of self-expression. Although she enjoys experimenting with various mediums, Karen’s passion continues to be drawing and watercolour painting. She strives to learn from every piece she creates. Art keeps her curious and always observing everyday life with intrigue. Colour, line, shape and negative space, fascinates her.
Much of Karen’s inspiration comes from living in the Great Lakes region with all the abundance it provides. Her creativity is often awakened by something as simple as a fresh tomato or herbs from her own garden. All the things that Karen loves and appreciates are reflected in her artwork.
Born in Niagara Falls and residing in Welland, Karen is excited to be a part of the local art community. She has earned a diploma in Visual Art and Design at Niagara College; attended painting classes in Niagara Falls and Chippawa. Her work has been displayed at Rodman Hall and several years at the Queenston Art Show and the Niagara Falls Art Gallery. Karen is looking forward to having her artworks displayed at the upcoming VAW Art Shows.
