Karen's Bio

Karen Biko is a Calgary artist who’s been exhibiting and selling art in Alberta for years. Inspired at an early age while surrounded by art has always been a huge motivation, and has motivated her to develop her own creative fashion. Formally trained as an Interior Designer, she continues to work with colour, space, and expression in her paintings.

Her abstract style reflects emotion as well as a sense of humor. Always looking for new techniques and interesting aspects to add to paintings, Karen’s work is continually growing. From painting on paper to floppy discs, she can be found looking at everyday objects with a creative thought of “how can I use this?”

As a prolific painter, Karen is always excited to try a new project. She has completed several multi-piece commissions, as well as led Public Community projects and events. She eagerly helps out with fundraising efforts, and has appeared in many juried shows and events.
