Karen is a printmaker and new media artist working and living in Winnipeg. She received a BFA from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. Karen has exhibited her work in solo and juried exhibitions in Canada, USA, Europe, Africa, and China.
Karen will continue work on her Fabric of Belonging project, which is a multimedia series of rubbings of children’s dresses that integrates text. As a young child growing up in Africa, Karen lived through the instability of the 1964 Simba Rebellion in the Congo. Revisiting Africa after many years brought back vivid memories for Karen, which she began to integrate into her current work, Fabric of Belonging.

Karen will share the compelling story of her work teaching Inuit printmakers in the Arctic Circle in 2011. She was told only to bring a parka, which became the inspiration for an entire body of work. Bring along your wireless technology to watch the slide show.
