Karen completed her Computer Science studies at UJ (then RAU) in 1991 and followed a career in software development for over 20 years. Through the years, she cultivated her love for art by attending art classes and workshops and joining various art groups as often as she could.
Changing career has been a gradual process she says, but these days she proudly introduces herself as an artist, and programming has now become her part-time hobby.
Karen is a multi-disciplinary artist, painting with oils, water-based mediums, paper collage, charcoal, and even digital media. She has a great love for expressive mark making. Since she joined a life figure drawing group in 2019, she has fallen in love with portraiture and depicting the human figure.
