BEHIND THE ART

ARTIST, TEACHER, VISUAL COACH

I PAINT, I CREATE AND I USE MY BRUSH TO EXPLORE THE CONCEPTS OF GENDER, IDENTITY, AND THE DIASPORA.

My name is Karen Caldwell, and I am a self-taught, artist originally from North West London. I specialize in black art from an African American, British and Caribbean perspective as a result of the time I spend in London, Minneapolis and Barbados.
