Karen E. Schulz enjoys an eclectic art practice which roams between several media. From expressing a wide range of one-off thoughts in her prints, to manipulating the surface of a sheet of paper in recent experimental drawings, she is inspired by the evolution of an idea as it reveals itself in that practice. Born in the farming community of Grandview, Manitoba, she has been based in Winnipeg since 1962, with a two year sojourn to Arizona which included a year of Fine Arts. Her print Continued.... was collected by The Canada Council Art Bank and her award-winning short video Once Removed has been featured in BlackFlash Magazine. Karen has maintained a studio in Winnipeg's Exchange District since 2005 where the work of serious planning and welcoming the unexpected are inseparable.
