Karen earned her advanced honours certificate in Visual Arts from Mohawk College working in various media: pastel, watercolour, coloured pencil, graphite, acrylic and Chinese Brush Painting.
As a young child Karen loved to hike and explore the woods near her home – seeking to find the next unique plant, insect, or amphibian. These adventures developed an appreciation for the abundance of life around us and of the fragile beauty of the ecosystem in Hamilton.
The decade 2021 through 2030 has been declared the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration by the United Nations. By calling for the protection and revival of ecosystems around the world for the benefit of people and nature we can halt the degradation of ecosystems and restore them to achieve our global goals – to enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change and stop the collapse of biodiversity.
Karen’s current work shows the viewer exactly what species we are at risk of losing in Hamilton. Combining her artistic skill with her knowledge and love of nature highlights the amazing biodiversity found in the Hamilton area. This may not play a significant role in stopping the collapse of local biodiversity but is her way of trying to make a difference.
