Karen Adams, Columbus, Ohio Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement I have always loved making art. In college it was painting and ceramics that held my interests, but through the years, photography has become my main focus (no pun intended!) This has combined with a love of gardening, then an interest in the gorgeous butterflies that were my companions out in the sunshine. So now, I would like to share the beauty I live with in my backyard garden in Ohio.
