Karen Marie Cross
After years of raising children, midwifing babies and teaching in a Montessori/Art based classroom Karen grew up to be artist. Using paint, paper, anything vintage and a sewing machine she creates riverscapes, abstract paintings, art clothes and life size paper dresses.
Growing up swimming at Barton Springs, visiting art and natural history museums has brought art and nature together in her artwork and life. An esthetic developed which reflects beauty and order in her art work.
Karen obtained a BFA in Studio Art from U.T. Austin. A gypsy at heart, she is intrigued by 2-5 word phrases, falling apart vintage textiles, simplicity, scribbled lines and blended paint. Patterns found in nature and raw textures are some of her favorite things.
Never say never, playfulness and lOvE can be found somewhere in her studio.
