ART has always been Karen's best friend, constant companion, coach, antagonist and therapist. Her job as an artist for an art supply company exposed her to a world of creativity and boundless opportunities for sharing art techniques with others. Karen loves discovering, learning and sharing creativity. Her unique and distinctive approach to paper crafting and origami brought her national attention and her work has been featured on television shows, magazines, DVD's and books.
In her search for inner peace in a crazy world, Karen developed the Art of Kumomi, a creative process which combines spontaneous painting with controlled drawing as a meditative art form. She currently teaches Kumomi and creative workshops at events and retreats all over the US.
Karen is the author of The Art of Kumomi, Origami Card Craft and several paper crafting books.
