San Francisco Artist Karen Coggeshall had early careers in Fashion merchandising, Graphic Design, and Freelance Design Projects. In 2002, she returned to school to study Painting, Drawing and Printmaking. Since that time she has built up a unique body of work that includes landscapes, still lifes and semi-abstract Monoprints.
Karen is also an accomplished jewelry artist, specializing in wire-wrapping and beading with beautiful gemstone beads and crystals.
My art reflects my passion for vibrant color, strong graphic elements, pattern and texture.
I work in oil, ink, fabric, paper, pastels and watercolor and enjoy "crossing over" the boundaries between fine art, crafts, textiles, and decorative arts.
My jewelry is inspired by early 20th century strands of gemstones, pearls and crystal.
