“I work intuitively, mining personal experiences, energy, movement, nature and the occasional
external interruptions of politics”.
Karin’s work is a hybrid of improvisational painting and exacting stitching. She has been using hand embroidery and bead work as a medium for art making for the past twenty years and uses the process of integrating these vastly different materials and techniques to create mesmerizing and complex abstractions. Shapes, patterns and movement build an elusive narrative that slowly unfolds.
Karin studied sculpture and painting at Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia, PA. She has maintained a studio in Brunswick, MD, for many years while exhibiting nationally and internationally. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian National Museum of Art, and the United States Embassy in Tashkent, Uzbekistan as well as many private collections.
