A multi-faceted artist, Karen Feuer-Schwager currently expresses her emotions, experiences and dreams through a neo-expressionistic style. Whether working on canvas, plexiglas or Polaroid film, her work has a sensual and highly tactile quality that has evolved from techniques developed over a lifetime of making art.
Widely exhibited throughout Southern California, her artistic career began at an early age fostered by her father, a cartoonist. Moving from the studio to classroom, Karen began teaching art after graduation from Temple University in 1965. She has taught classes and provided needed instruction to various institutions as an art-therapist and working with learning disabled children.
Currently residing in Laguna Beach, California, she has lived and exhibited in New York, France and Switzerland.
