About Karen Larrabee:
I like to define myself as a “free-style” artist as I love all things creative.
I was born and raised in northern NJ where I had many opportunities to visit the museums of NYC. How they inspired me! I then received a B.A. in art and education, and a Master’s of Liberal Learning, (yes, a MA.L.L, degree), with concentrations in studio art, art history and art education from Marietta College, Marietta, OH. While in Ohio, I married, raised a family and taught art until my retirement a few years ago. I received many awards for both my teaching and artistic endeavors.
I have continuously been exposed to, and engaged in many media and styles and enjoy the freedom to be creative and experiment artistically. Lately I have been working in mixed media collage, but I enjoy drawing, water colors, pastels and designing one-of-a-kind home décor pieces. For me, art and life just naturally go hand in hand and SC is giving me a whole new palette to explore and enjoy.
