artistic gift. Since that time, she has taught herself to utilize

Developing her own style through many hours of study of techniques and
creating those of her own, Karen has continually worked to improve her
art. "The best artist never stops learning," Karen says.
"There is always some way to better your art. You must keep an open
mind and be willing to change your work as needed. Many pieces
keep evolving as they progress and end up quite the learning
