Karen is a Professional Multi Award-winning Composer, Pianist, and Professional American Artist, for the last 30 years, born in Denmark, living and working in NYC. & Florida /BMI member.
She is Educated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design in Copenhagen, 1991, Master. Working as a painter, sculptor, and photographer for 30 years.

Her built works include several permanent public sculptures- installations and she is represented in 700+ private collections.
Her artwork is spiritual. She works with nature and diverse materials transmuting energy and light in her artistic vision. Several of her pieces are inspired by the phenomena in general relativity known as “Event Horizons.” An event horizon is a space-time boundary beyond which the laws of physics as we know them, cease to exist. It is her hope that her works speak to the soul and entices the viewer to see beyond the mere physicality of a piece, to a deeper level of personal understanding and emotional meaning.
When sculpting she works predominantly in bronze and glass. Her pieces are at once graceful, delicate, simple, and monumental. She draws on the human figure as a common language that speaks to us. Through her style, she is able to achieve works that evoke the universality of the human condition. It is a language that is accessible to all regardless of age, culture, and education. Because of this, her figures, at times, are highly stylistic. They lack detailed hands and faces so that they embody universality. She is able to convey emotion purely through gesture and pose.
