Karen Avila

Karen is a master at the technique called “overlay,” practiced for centuries by artists from many different cultures and civilizations. She began integrating this style into her artwork over 30 years ago after seeing photographs of Hopi silverwork jewelry. Ideas for her artwork come from nature - such as insects, animals and plants - as well as from art deco-styled geometric shapes.
