Personal relationships are integral to our survival; they bring meaning to life and satisfy the need for interaction on both an emotional and physical level.In these situations communication is usually verbal; however nuances that arise in the absence of words are even more evocative.These interchanges occur through a touch, a glance, a smell, or a whispered word.They are quiet, subtle, and often transitory.
In this work form, surface, line, and color bring attention to delicate and subtle elements of design; they are metaphors for fleeting experiences often not valued until they have passed.Through this work, Karen seeks to create a permanent manifestation of these experiences and convey their emotional significance.
