Artist Statement

Working out of her studio spaces in both the Yukon and Nova Scotia Karen explores mark making with oil paint, cold wax medium, acrylics, and gouache, palette knives, rubber scrapers, layering and paintbrushes. Although her approach is largely representational, Karen considers abstraction in expressing subjectivity which she pieces into her work creating fun and compelling compositions with clean, bold and sensuous palettes.
