Karen Rips is a native California fiber artist whose experience as a neonatal nurse for twenty-five years has played a significant role in her approach to art and how she views the people and things around her. Over the years, Rips has created work that has explored both the physical and the emotional aspects of the human body. Artistically she has found herself abstracting the complex into the simplest of shapes, lines and spaces.
Rips is a Juried Artist Member of SAQA and SDA. Her current body of work is focused on the interpretation of medical imaging through the use of X-rays, MRI’s and CT scans. This has resulted in A View Within, her collaboration with fellow artist Paula Chung now in its sixth year.
