Karin was raised in New England and currently lives in Massachusetts. She graduated with honors as an undergraduate and graduate student. She earned her BS at St. Lawrence University as a Double Major in Fine Arts & Biology, and later, her MFA from the Institute of Art & Design at New England College in Visual Arts.

Karin’s practice revolves around her unique use of line. She utilizes this fundamental art element to draw attention to subjects that are overlooked or undervalued. She recently received an artist honorarium for her sculptural installation, I Write Your Name. This outdoor sculpture was created in response to discussions about climate change hosted by Umbrella Arts Center and exhibited in the Hapgood Wright Town Forest located in Concord, MA.

Karin’s professional career includes work as an art educator, published illustrator, muralist, and studio artist. Her creativity has been featured in a national magazine and in exhibitions throughout New England, New York, & in Georgia.
