karen grew up with art all around her. she states her mom was an amazing artis who painted stunningly detailed, vivid, botanical art and was also a pottery teacher. kassa’s grandfather was an accomplished artist who created fine architectural and magnificent landscape pieces. both of karen’s grandmothers were amazing at all sorts of crafts, including sewing, knitting, cooking and flower arranging.
with all that artistry in her family it is no wonder karen loves being in her craft room. she loves the balance she has found within its walls. she admits she can get into a frantic, hyper mode so she needs a few diversions in her room with her, such as her dogs and keeping her television on. she usually opts for a channel that has something interesting on like a detective or thriller program. the dogs and tv help to distract her making for a perfectly balanced work environment.
kassa’s artwork has a little shabby chic edge to it. she is happiest combing all sorts of mediums that helps to push her boundaries and helps to keep her art evolving. i think you'll agree with me that karen's work is wonderful.
i love all the textures karen used to create this. it's such a wonderful idea. i love how cleverly she has used my rubber stamps. that makes me very happy.
