Karin began working with watercolour in the early 90’s. She creates wildlife and coastal paintings in acrylics and mixed media and prefers to work with unusual canvases and materials such as huge boulders to wild turkey feathers. Currently, she hand-sculpts wildlife (including her yoga bears) out of wood cellulose. Her feather and 3D art has been part of the Western Art Show of the Calgary Stampede for over 15 years and has also been featured in TV specials for HGTV and Chinese/Canadian TV.
Karin is from the Netherlands, lived with her family and worked in the Far and Middle East for many years, and emigrated to Canada in 1997. She currently spends her studio time in either Vancouver or in Davis Bay on the Sunshine Coast, BC.
