Hello there! My name is Karen Caldwell, and I’m a Creative Wellness Coach and abstract figurative artist based in the vibrant North East Minneapolis. With my passion for both creativity and wellness, I’ve developed a unique approach to promoting personal growth and well-being through art.

I firmly believe that art is for everyone, and that it has the power to transform even the most unexpected places into creative and inspiring environments.

Whether it’s a corporate boardroom or a community center, I love finding ways to infuse art and creativity into these spaces. Through my coaching work and art exhibitions, I aim to break down the barriers that often prevent people from engaging with art, and to make it more accessible to all.

For me, art is not just a luxury for the privileged few. It’s a vital and essential part of our human experience, one that has the power to uplift and inspire us all
