KAREN CHRISTINE PATRICK, ARTIST FRIDAY AT THE TRANQUIL BUZZ COFFEE SHOP, Friday, FEB 16th, Silver City, NM


Karen Christine Patrick is a mixed-media artist whose work includes small-scale projects such as jewelry, reclaimed materials collage/assemblage, watercolor/acrylic with landscapes/marine/abstract subject matter, and positive affirmation inspiration.

Karen was a part of the Pacific Northwest art scene in Olympia and Seattle, Washington where she displayed work in restaurants and coffee shops. She was a frequent participant in the Southwest Washington Fair.

She currently lives in Silver City, New Mexico where she participates in the art scene with her work in mixed-media and found materials collage/assemblage. Patrick facilitates a creativity recovery group in town.

Patrick states, "I believe in the motto, 'Art Saves Lives.' I was a family caregiver for disabled and elderly family members over 30 years and found comfort and encouragement participating in the art scene wherever I have lived.

Art is my favorite self-help therapy, and I've enjoyed facilitating art recovery classes for children, women, the disabled, and for domestic violence recovery. To me, life without art just doesn't have any color to it."
