Karen Ball is a transplanted Texan who currently lives in Missouri. Having lived all over the United States, as well as a stint in South America, Karen has picked up tactics and techniques of art from all over. As a result, she has a unique approach to art.
But for Karen, as she brings a new project to light, the joy derives from taking something internal, and creating it with her hands for all the world to see.
In addition to art, Karen is a writer of both prose and songs. She loves gardening and flowers.
Karen always has a smile on her face, and she's quick to share that smile with everyone she meets. She is married and has one adult daughter, and her husband and daughter are her biggest supporters and fans.
During the past few years, Karen has branched off into the field of graphic art, and she had created cover art for fiction novels. For examples of Karen's work visit Dayne Gearner.
