Karen grew up in Colorado amidst the beauty of the Colorado Rockies. This early appreciation of beauty came from her glorious surroundings as well as a Mother who was an award-winning artist.
Karen's creativity brought her to California to study at the Academy of Art in San Francisco where she began her photography career.
Since then, she has developed a unique way of capturing ethereal beauty and tranquility in her photographs. Her love for these moments in time, has led her to creating new ways of looking at art.
These unique and original designs in dimensional wall decor are infused into silver or gold metal, glass, acrylic or marble. The three dimensional art is then mounted onto porcelain, travertine or cork.
Karen’s photographs have been published in renowned books and magazines such as: Travel and Leisure, National Geographic, and This Is Canada. Her exhibits have included galleries in New York, Denver, Carmel, Jackson Hole, Philadelphia, Tiburon and Napa Valley.
