Karen Schnepf Statement

"Color outside the lines' has been my life philosophy since childhood. I thrive on the unexpected, which I have found is what happens when you take a basic principle and add a twist. As a child, I applied this philosophy to cooking with my father, concocting something completely original with ingredients you’d never dream could go together, and yet taste so wonderful. The same philosophy applies to my art today. I am constantly striving to fine that next step or technique that elevates my work to the next level and adds interest to the piece. I have come to realize over the years that there are no rules in art, that has been incredbly freeing and rewarding; and has allowed me to go places in my work that I never dreamed I could. My art creates something refreshingly unexpected with unusual elements and an array of colors. It is simplistic, always abstract and wildly vivid. Over my career as an artist, I have worked in a variety of mediums including clay, glass, watercolor, and now mixed media on canvas.
