“It is a true gift to share my artistic creations and designs with you! It is my intention to transform and inspire people on a large scale through the use of my unique, imaginative visual vocabulary while inspiring, bringing joy, love and healing to others. I am eternally grateful for all the people and resources that have continued to support me on my colorful artistic journey.”
Ms. Jacobs is a self-taught artist living in New York. From an early age she expressed her emotions in journals using colored pencil and has evolved this process organically, now exploring the spatial movement of color and elements of design. Today, this process has manifested into vibrant and intricate images filled with spontaneity and deep revelations. Her intent is to inspire others with her creations and have the viewers connect emotionally and spiritually.
Immersed in a powerful artistic journey, Karen spends hours creating vibrant, raw and symbolic imagery. It is Art full of discovery and mystery, allowing the viewer the opportunity for novelty time after time. Within each drawing hidden images are revealed. Her art ranges from serious to whimsical and can have playful elements, for example the doves found in her "Rainbow Peace Palace" drawing.
Working primarily with colored pencil allows Karen to delve within her senses while exploring the unknown in the abstract world. She prefers to design a juxtaposition of objective and subjective elements, displaying balance between emblematic shapes, imaginative detail and an instinctive sense of color.
Karen has also begun exploring different styles of painting and had the honor and privilege of attending a Mische Technique Visionary Summer Painting Seminar in Boulder, Colorado with Professor Philip Rubinov Jacobson, who studied with internationally renowned artist, Ernest Fuchs. Under his guidance and mentorship along with co-teacher Mantra Cora, she explored a fascinating mixed-technique consisting of egg tempera and oil and experimented with Creative and Innovative Grounds.
Karen’s work has been exhibited in galleries, juried exhibitions and has gained exposure in publications and online forums such as Lost at E-Minor and Studio Visit Magazine. Her works can be viewed kjacobsart.com.
