Artist: Karen VoShe/Her/Hers

Aritistic Discipline: Visual

Karen Vo is a visual artist working in primarily gouache and graphite. Spoiled by the scenery and wildlife of Washington state all of her life, her art attempts to capture the beauty and motion of animals and plant life, with an affinity for birds.

Karen completed her education in biochemistry and molecular biology in 2019 and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in pharmacy. While her career in science and medicine keeps her incredibly busy, she takes every opportunity to recreate the wildlife that surrounds us.
