Working in oils, Karen paints city and landscapes. She is interested in architecture, being attracted to various elements of design such as pattern and repetition. Her paintings reflect an interest in rich colour, and the contrast of light and shadow.
Her most recent works represent scenes observed across Canada with her husband, artist Marshall Hugh Kaiser.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and now living in Victoria, BC, Karen is a member of the Oak Bay Community Artists Society, and shows her work twice a year in the Oak Bay studio tours.
