Karin is a teacher and artist whose love of education and textiles has led her on a wild adventure around the world. She has a BA in Art Education from Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL and an MFA in Fibers from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. After four years in South Korea, teaching in the Craft Design department at Keimyung University, she now calls Colorado home. For the last 15 years Karin has invested in arts education as a teacher in public and private schools, a facilitator of workshops for kids and adults, a leader in art camps, and a visiting artist. Whatever the context, she is passionate about helping others to find their creative voice!
Always a maker, Karin learned to sew as a young girl with her mother, learned to weave and paint as a young adult with insightful teachers, and learned to embroider with the help of
charismatic friends. Her love of textiles is rooted in family and cultural tradition and the joy found in materials and process. She works out of a small studio in Wheat Ridge and exhibits locally with Christos Collective (a front range artist collective). In her free time, she enjoys riding her bike, gardening, cooking and dancing.
