About the Artist

Karen Chadwick is a Florida native and graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design. An everlasting curiosity and appreciation for the flora and fauna found in the woodlands, swamps and coastlines of Florida have provided limitless inspiration for Karen's creative endeavors.

 


Artist's Statement

The natural systems of the sky, land, waterways and shorelines dance together through the perpetual seasonal rhythms of time. I feel most alive when I can focus on the rhythm of that dance and celebrate it's existence by creating a work which honors some small aspect of a player on nature's stage. A shell, a fish, a flower, frogs, alligators and bees are all stars in the theater of life. Every square inch is a wide world of wonder.
