Born Wiesbaden, Germany and raised in a European home, Karin traveled
extensively throughout her young life. Karin is a self-taught artist who creates in acrylics, oils,
watercolors and most recently in wood burning. Ever since she can remember she
loved creativity and was fascinated by colors and marveled at mixing colors to get the exact color she was seeking.
Karin has made strides in getting back into her artwork after years of putting
it hold when working in the Travel Industry as a group operator and was an
Innkeeper/Owner of Blaine House Bed & Breakfast in Franklin, NC.
Over the past 17 years, Karin has collected various subject matter that she is interested in painting. It's really just whatever strikes her fancy...pet
portraits, animals, landscapes, family portraits, still life, impressionistic and landmarks.
As she states "I love it all, it's a passion of mine!"
Having grown up some in Alaska and Hawaii, she feels at home in the mountains of North Carolina, an area that is conducive to painting & creativity because of its beauty and tranquility.
She has also thrust her creative efforts in website design, learning how to create and host websites and developed a small business called "Web on Wheels"
