Karen Wolf likes to paint a wide variety of subject matter in both representational & abstract styles. Inspiration for her work most often comes from images having strong contrasts in value, color or texture. Exploring different ideas, media & techniques that lead to new expressions through art is her aim.
She has been designing & creating jewelry with precious metals, gemstones, vintage & artist made glass beads, incorporating her artwork into some of the pieces. She also uses a material called precious metal clay to sculpt one of a kind jewelry pieces. Precious metal clay is a clay with silver, bronze ( or gold ) particles suspended in an organic binder that burns off during a firing process resulting in a solid piece of 100% fine silver, bronze ( or gold ).
