In this presentation, Karen will unmask and lay bare the romantic notion of an artist’s inner and outer world. She will discuss the agony and the ecstasy of the artist’s journey through a start-to-finish multi-media exposé on what it really takes to put on a solo art show.

    On an internal level, Karen will reveal a glimpse into the role of the Muse and discuss the Inner Critic—the speed bumps it poses as well as its positive role in the creative process. On an external level, we will get a glimpse of all aspects of putting on a successful show.
