Karen Clark, from a very early age, had an avid interest in art. At 15, she entered a stone sculpture in the California Regional and was awarded a “Golden Key”. In college, she majored in Art History and Studio Arts, and then decided to further her education by getting a Secondary Credential at USCLA. While there, she took studio classes in sculpture and fiber. She fell in love with fiber, found out UCLA offered a master’s program in Fiber and continued her education there.
Karen has taught classes in most media to all ages. In 1989 she opened her art studio and gallery, “Artist’s Hang-Out”. It was a very successful and rewarding experience, but after 19+ years of running the business, she hungered for the time to start showing her own art, mainly her late-blooming love of watercolor. She closed her studio and started showing her work locally, then statewide, and finally internationally, winning many awards.
You can find Karen teaching a few classes at Central Park in Rancho Cucamonga, teaching workshops, or lecturing at various art associations; a continual joy of sharing her knowledge of art with students.
