Karen Hornsten, Davis, California Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I am such an avid crafter and use my photographic images in my greeting cards. I began many years ago making my own gifts and cards out of necessity but now have an interest to share them with others. I would like to find a way to sell my work and have decided that my photographs are beautiful enough to try this mode of sales for my work. There is more to me than meets the eye here; I also do extensive beeding, use my Cricut machine to create unique little works of art, and have so many ideas in my brain that I can't keep up with them all. I also paint with oils, acrylics, water colors; you name it. I have sold original oils, done in detail from my own photographs. Now I am concentrating my work in the graphic arts area; my photographs are the main component here.
