The artist was born in 1954 to an American mother and Franch father. After her studies at the Academy Charpenier, Karen was discovered by the famous art dealer and collector Daniel Cordier who encouraged her to realize imaginiary landscapes with no water or sky, without animal or human representation with the particularity of accumulated details.
Karen has been active on the artistic scene since 1986. Her first solo exhibition was held at Galerie Beaubourg in Paris with great success, then followed by Centre Georges Pompidou in 1989.
Her works are in the permanent collections of Les Abbatoirs, Toulouse, France.
Karen has exhibited in France and mainly in Asia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul.
Her works have recently become part of MAMAC of Nice ( Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain), with a donation of 10 large format canvases 100% displaying the very colorful vegetation universe.
Karen culitvates an atypical style:
"Sur mes toiles j'insuffle bonheur, joie de vivre, espoir, vitalité et du rêve." (On my canvases I instill luck, joy, hope, vitality and dreams)
MAMAC regularly solicits for artist’s donations but accepts them sparingly. Hence it is a great honor for Karen to become part of the Museum’s permanent collections even as she continues to work away from contemporary art’s conventional paths.
