Long before taking up feltmaking, Karen Waters began her art career as a photographic artist, with her focus on New Mexico's nature and wildlife.
She is known for her painterly photographs, which are created by blending photographic textures into her images. These textures, which she creates out of photographing textured objects, are then overlayed and blended into her subject photographs, giving them a dreamlike effect. Some are even printed on aluminum, giving them further dimension and depth.
Karen's work is collected throughout the states and abroad, and will be featured at 7Arts Gallery from November 1, through December 31, 2017.
