An accomplished divemaster, Karen is a regular off the shores of Palm Beach and the Caribbean. She has studied art and photography at the University of Minnesota, Florida International University and with various private artists. Her move into professional underwater photography was prompted by accolades she received after displaying and selling photos from professional offices in her area. Karen's use of masterful composition, blending of vibrant colors and unique subject matter has garnered her awards from local galleries and national publications. Making her move into digital, underwater photography, Karen's emphasis has shifted to the use of ambient light and color correction to intensify the impact of her work. The results are stunning, digital images that compliment her earlier works in film and slides. Karen's newest artwork reflects her interest in shapes, shadows and highlights. "Kseapix" captures nature creating its own abstractions. Now available in limited editions, Kseapix will soon become the forerunner in underwater digital imagery. A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Karen has been a Floridian since 1970. She now lives in Palm City with her blue and gold macaw, Scottie and Bedlington Terrier Counselor Troi. Artist's Statement "The beauty and fragility of our ocean's coral reef systems has come under attack by both man and nature. The photos I take are my way of honoring this extraordinary environment, while at the same time creating a visual tribute for all to enjoy. Photography is an art form that speaks through its subject matter, however the art of photography is more than subject matter, lighting and exposure. It relies on the artist's "eye" and sense of composition. Without that, all you have is a picture."
