Karen Van Galder ceramic sculptor
I grew up in the Bay Area and have lived in New York, Toronto, and Tokyo. I presently live in the Santa Cruz Mountains with my husband and giant Airedale, Nora. Art plays a huge role in my daily life with continued study of the figure in sculpture, drawing, printmaking, and oil painting.
