Karen Madden is a self-taught, multi-media artist, working with fiber, particularly felting wool and most recently metal sculpting. Her love of working with her hands explains her interest in two disparate mediums. Each medium challenges her creativity as she learns to work with different materials.
Her body of fiber medium work ranges from large free-flowing pieces to more structured, framed pieces. Her inspiration comes from what her eye sees and her mind interrupts while traveling the world. The body of work on display at Hopewell Animal Hospital is from her “Of The Earth” series with many pieces inspired from her exploration of Iceland a few years ago.
Notably, Karen has been involved with several Hudson Valley art galleries and most recently chaired the ArtEast Open Studio Tour. Her award winning work has been shown nationally in museums and galleries.
