Woolworth Walk

Karen Zimmerman

Fluctuating between watercolor, acrylics, collage, and oil paints, Karen mostly paints living things: people, animals, birds, and flowers. Creating a bridge between realism and caricature makes people smile. The animated subject matter is enlivened through detail, movement and light, with the backgrounds being abstract and whimsical. Zimmerman graduated from Cairn University, worked in East Africa with Africa Inland Mission for twenty years. Influenced by the lively colors and clever personalities of the nationals there, she enjoys the simplicity and industriousness of making her own frames and products from harvested or recycled wood. She has a collection of watercolor scenes from her years in Mozambique, but currently paints from her her studio in East Tennessee.
