About Karen Kaul

My work is driven by a study in contrasts: light and dark, refined and rustic, serene and chaotic. Contrast creates dynamic tension—the ultimate playground for any artist. Orchestrating the balance between opposites is where life and art become interesting to me. I currently reside near Minneapolis on two unruly acres with my husband, two boys, and a cat.
