Karen O'Bryan spends her days drawing, painting, designing, drinking whiskey gingers with dear friends, and generally working more hours than necessary to keep life interesting. She loves exploring the themes of nature, beauty and identity in her work through color, pattern, and the human figure. She received a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2007 and has displayed her work in galleries, magazines, community spaces, and of course, the interwebs. She currently resides in Minneapolis, MN with her monster-loving fiance, obese dog-loathing cat, and her drooly cat-terrorizing dog.
