Karen began her mosaic journey after visiting St Marks in Venice. She recalls going back again and again to the church during her visit to take in how the mosaics covered every inch. She was hooked!! That was 10 years ago and today she is a modern mosaicist. Color and shiny objects are almost always in her work. She loves working with beads, rhinestones, handmade tiles, jewelry pieces, Smalti, stained glass and tiles. Karen has studied with many and learned much. She looks forward to helping students make special items, work with passion, choose colors, and create the best piece of artwork for their space.
