Artist Journey Statement
I started this website as a healing page for those experiencing serious illness in physical recovery and for people to see my visual art work and current projects with art shows. Getting out in nature and access to nature ,whenever possible and also getting herbs, and other forms of self care with the arts as a positive influence to uplift people. There are herbs that heal and help people through difficult times, art and plant based living with spirit is a part of this journey.
I do not make any health claims when it comes to cannabis extracts and Cancer and other serious illnesses, medical cannabis has helped many people recover, CBD and THC, for some it is too late, as getting their system adjusted to a plant based means as prevention,it is getting the best organic strain grown under the best outdoor conditions and what is specific for the ailment holistic, for many this is difficult as timing, and can be a needle in the haystack, many are finding relieft from natural herbs with spirituality, a positive attitude, it has not been proven to be the cure for anything, known to have a curative effect. What works is finding the right combination of healing modalities for health and longevity. For some is yoga or light movement, changes in diet as alkaline non processed foods and access to fresh air and clean water, herbs. Consult with a Herbalist and Naturopathic Doctor for more information on the right herbs for you or your loved one.

She returned to creating her visual art as a practice, energy balancing art, a quiet understated means of communicative expression, after a independent ten year career in the artistic and commercial music industry, desired empowerment and strength with more peace and quiet, her images are healing and calming explorations, a subtle plant based spirit consciousness and healing modality with a more grounded earth bound connection experience.
Connecting with family,friends and community ties with a compassionate heart, balanced mindset, became more of vast importance to her, she enjoyed brave experiences of local immersions of languages and world cultures, good, bad, beautiful and ugly, she devoted her time, energy and resources to support the healing of the seriously ill, with a better understanding of the real world, with humanities. Karen felt spiritually moved and motivated by her experiences and with an intentional value based, emerging renewable energy sector, global evolutionary exploration to be an active living community participant with the British Columbia, Landscape.Her strong sense of a Canadian identity with community, led her to do conscious community service partnerships exchanged with non -profits are value based with life affirming action.
Karen calls Vancouver her home, more than a place of retreat, healing while capturing her feelings with experiencing BC landscapes and visionary art as calming images, are worldly influenced multi and cross cultural paintings based on a unified theory practice and principle in having a living connection with the natural world, her most recent development into textiles as with her coastal influenced art,, displayed on an international basis with galleries private and public, has come full circle between emerging and established, her art travels in residence as an independent for over ten years, her artistic journey consisting of Europe, 2006-onward to the South Pacific South West, Caribbean and the Middle East, her vantage point of the real world and historic influences is a more of a plant based focus and direction, is sought with her present day work.
Living art also known to some as outsider art, community based arts, rather than the established typical 1% elite status quo investment around the concept of death, is a rebirth and renewal with a strong respect of human life and earthly values and a balance of masculine feminine energies, a living planet as a strategic investment with a future, a living legacy and with peaceful living, than yet just another commodity, her strong feminine connection to nature became a loud call of resistance with her artistic value based, revolutionary to evolutionary humanitarian approach.
Karen became involved in the Disability arts and culture movement in 2009 as self advocate artist of independence with her North and South Pacific coastal influenced paintings from her residency travels on exhibit in Toronto and since then directed her passion for the arts to giving and receiving, into fund raising for humanities, supporting with the sales of her art and volunteering on worthy community and important life affirming charitable causes with her art for every day people. .Karen is also an outdoor nature enthusiast and an up and coming Herbalist in botanical healing arts where she is inspired by plant based materials,she is a very recent member of the BC association of Herbalists. 2015 -2016 an exploration into earth friendly textiles with natural dyes as used in ancient cultures of story telling with a modern day approach,utilizing art mediums minimizing the impact on our Planet and Oceans.
