Who are your favorite artists, well-known or otherwise?

Joseph Cornell, Turner, Greg Constantine, Mary Ryden, Magritte, Sir John Tenniel, Kay Nielsen, Arthur Rackham, Chuck Jones and the rest of the Termite Terrace, Jeff Smith, Edmund Dulac, Henry Darger, too many more.

What other small-scale art projects (if any) appeal to you? Greeting cards, postcards, altered books, boxes, 4 x 4s...?

Altered shadow boxes, shrines, 4x6 collages, doll furniture--unusual stuff.

Why ATCs? What's the attraction?

ATCs were supposed to be a way for me to learn various techniques that I could apply to larger assemblages, but they're like poems or haikus--the strict parameters mean you have to really stretch your imagination. Yoga for thinking.

What's your motto or favorite saying?

Until I change it: Question authority.

What are your favorite places on earth?

New York, Cape Cod, Wales, London, Philadelphia, Los Angeles


I'm Karen, I live in Natick. I was almost at the point where my crafting simply consisted of buying stuff, so I needed to be in a creative atmosphere. This is perfect.

What Karen is saying about this Meetup Group
