Fairly new to stamping and to thinking of
herself as an "artist" she is not quite comfortable
with it, (though those of us who know her, always thought
of her as an artist). Among other things, Karen is exploring
stamping, collage, altered books, jounalling, printing and
photography while she looks for her niche. She put aside
her "corporate" hat, her "student" hat,
her "helping professions" hat and is trying out
her "Artist's Beret."
She says she still remembers when her idea
of "crafts supplies" was borrowing her son's crayons!
Now she has a studio full of equipment and supplies and
has joined the ranks of those of us who can't throw anything
away! Her grandson surveyed the scene one day and asked
her innocently, "Why do you have so much STUFF?"
We hope later to have a more detailed biography
from Karen, chronicling her path to the arts.
