Visitors to the gallery are impressed with Karens intricate wire work but when you see her work as a portrait artist it is clear how she is able to work out every detail in her work. The variety of wire designed jewelry and her subjects in painting are an indicator of her curiosity, talent and work ethic. Every piece is complete in itself.
I often hear people exclaim how they wish they had the talent to be an artist but most don't realize the time involved in the work.....and it IS work. My answer is "A concert pianist practices 8 hours daily to make that concert beautiful"
The artist Chuck Close said "Inspiration is for amateurs, the rest of us just get to work"
