It is with deep sadness that I pass on the news of Karen's passing. 
I want to send love and condolences to Jeff and their daughter.Of course it's a great understatement to say that she was a beautiful person of integrity and an astonishingly sensitive painter but I want to say it anyway.Her friendship, her life and art will all continue to inspire us.

From the Artist's Statement:

A personal script or language serves as a surrogate for memories, events or words that I have heard in my life. Through that language, repeating marks, color and scale I push the idea that something can be abstracted and still be narrative.
