Nature is both peaceful when it is groomed and a safe environment, to be outdoors is a valuable experience, calming with connection, in healing recovery, it is a garden,a park, a retreat in the woods in a group or family, personal safety is of great importance, in life quality,security. Nature is also dangerous, life threatening,relentless the fight for survival,we know we have already been there,predators,some are extreme and harsh conditions.

The cycle of life and death is natures design use precautions.

BiographyAbout Karen Born in small town rural Ontario Canada, Karen Colville obtained her bachelors in fine art at OCAD, since graduation,she facilitated numerous local workshops,
group and solo exhibits in North America and on an international level  Europe,South America, and UAE,,. Intrigued and captivated with the natural and super natural spiritual energies of the West Coast, simplicity in rural living, ecological and lush urban community gardens.

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. Proceeds of Karen's artworks today goes into funding her O2 Hyperberic neurological medical treatment to enable increased mobility and to restore balance and with contributing back toward causes making a positive community impact ,
