About Karen

a little bit more about me

Thank for your interest in my work.

I have had a life-long relationship with art, and attained my Bachelor of Fine Arts(Honors), with the University of Manitoba.

Although I have explored different media, I love working with oils. Within my compositions the figure is a prominent element. Like writing, I believe in painting what I know. Therefore I paint people who have touched of my life in one way or another.

In my photography  I explore both the figure and it’s relationship to the landscape.

My influences include René Magritte, Emily Carr, Lawren Harris, The Group of Seven, and Jacques Louis David.

Originally from Northern Ontario, I currently reside in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with my husband and son. I am also an author and illustrator of children’s books.
