Karen Timm Artist Statement
I am a visual artist who loves to create with paper or fabric. After receiving my BFA in Communication Design at the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota, I went into art directing at advertising agencies in the Twin Cities and in Madison. That background has influenced my artwork even today.
Working mostly with white paper, I love to create 3D work that has some kind of message for the viewer. At other times it is simply to evoke an emotion, a memory or even just a chuckle. Most of my work now is in the form of artists books, altered books or paper art.
