Studio 106 - Karen Olsen-Dunn
Karen Olsen-Dunn has a formal education in psychology, painting/drawing, and digital media with post graduate course work in printmaking. She received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2007 and BA in Psychology from San Francisco State 1988. She has shown her work in numerous exhibitions locally and nationally. Her professional career in the software industry developing instructional media for products has influenced her process and works to her advantage in developing her layered mixed-media works. She is able to refine her paintings, prints, and installations by adding intricate patterns of organic and inorganic forms, building up layers of paint and acrylic transfers in the final image.
Karen is currently teaching Image Transfer, Mokulito (Wood Plate Modern Lithography), and Solar Plate Printmaking classes in her studio at Pacific Felt Factory.
