AN ARTIST'S JOURNEY TO THE FROZEN CONTINENT
This event is free and open to the public.
Join Karin for an inspiring presentation as she takes you through time, from the first artist explorers to the realization of her own dream to travel to Antarctica.
Born in Germany into an artistic family, Karin has had a passion for painting since she was a child. She has been a professional artist for 25 years with a style that can be described as impressionistic. Her subjects are varied and she enjoys working in watercolour, oils, acrylics, pastels as well as digital photography. Calgary has been home to Karin and her family since 1977. She draws inspiration not only from the western landscape and the Canadian Rockies close at hand but also from international destinations she travels to on a regular basis.
Throughout the years, Karin’s paintings have been featured in solo and group shows in many prominent locations and private and public galleries locally, nationally and internationally. She is an enthusiastic art instructor to many aspiring artists in classes and workshops in Calgary and across Canada.
A professional artist for 30 years, Karin is an elected member of Canada’s most prestigious art societies, proficient in all mediums. Her award-winning work and dedication to the arts community earned her the 2010 Immigrant of Distinction Award. She is a passionate teacher and conducts painting holidays on land and at sea in Canada and abroad.
