Karin's artwork is a celebration of the abundant natural splendor of our California landscape, with a few tropical themes sprinkled in. She intends to express the spirit and mystery of nature through her paintings, and hopes to inspire conservation of our beautiful environment. "Each image is an invitation for you to follow your imagination, feelings and memories. Greatly inspired by the early California Impressionists plein-air painters, I attempt to reflect the radiance of color and light in the landscape. Like them, I love to express the golden glow of our California light, and how it illuminates the natural world. When choosing a location to paint, I follow "the call of the wild." Whenever I can, I paint "en plein air" (in the field)."
