“Here is an autopsy of my life as a twentieth century woman and an artist; a body of evidence of what I have witnessed and translated, then built through my soul’s perception.” —Karen Swenholt

Karen Swenholt is a figurative sculptor who lives and works in Northern Virginia. Influences from the West Coast’s Bay Area Figurative Movement combine with the emotional power of abstract expressionism from her East Coast studies and origins to form the foundation of Swenholt’s work today.
