Karen Hunziker is a prolific artist well-known for her very detailed mixed media consisting of ink, pastel and watercolor pens and woodworking.
Originally from New York, Karen studied art in southern California and now resides in El Dorado County, where her work is quite popular.
A lot of Karen's work is influenced by her love of Russian and Ukranian culture. Her vast amounts of subjects range from local Placerville and Sierra scenes to the nonsense and humor of ornate chickens hatching from Ukranian eggs.
"An artist has to do what an artist has to do," she jokes. So please check out Karen's many entertaining pieces at Gold Country Artists Gallery or call (530) 644-4858 for an appointment at her private studio, "Secret Headquarters Art Gallery" in Pollock Pines, CA (20 minutes east of Placerville).
