Featured Artist – Karen S. Schaffel is a Brooklyn, NY multi media landscape artist who was replanted and has been growing in the Hudson Valley, NY. Karen S. Schaffel is a mixed media artist from the Hudson Valley, NY area specializing in unique landscapes of vivid color evoking a positive emotion.
My curiosity pushes me into use of new elements, ideas and invented techniques. I continue to be pulled forward and surprised, challenged and interested in new ways to push the mixed medium process.
Each piece hovers between representation and abstraction, pulled one way or the other by the varying textures of the materials and my exploration of process. Within these studio sessions, I am constantly reconciling and melding, exposing through layers a coveted, essential balance.
