While in Atlanta, she was honored by a mentorship and residency with a well-known southern abstract expressionist, Clara Blalock, a student of Philip Guston. Karen was awarded an extended residency in Orquevaux, France. She holds a BFA in Painting from the University of Oklahoma, a Master of Divinity from Phillips Theological Seminary, and MFA studies from the University of New Mexico.
