Karen began teaching watercolor because she was intrigued with the pigment's luminosity and exploring her own process in finding the hues' intensity. She has also found in her own work and in teaching that moving from watercolor to another medium is a natural process; whereas, starting in something else and moving to watercolor is much more difficult. Watercolor gives Karen the transparent effects to reproduce light, the essence of her work. She manipulates the pigments the way light works and honors what the pigments do on the surface of her paintings.
