Description A #lion is a sight to see in the wild. He watched us with curiosity as we walked along the path on a 'Lion Walk' while on Safari in South Africa. The lions are up to a year old and we were able to pet their thick coarse fur.
Karen Zuk Rosenblatt, Delray Beach Member Since July 2016 Artist Statement As a former pianist and teacher who transitioned to Art after a strained finger forced me from the concert stage, I can say that the creative spark finds a way to go on. Just let it burn.
My Dad, a commercial artist/illustrator, had passed on and left me his supplies. I took his signature (“Zuk”) a shortened version of the family name (“Zukoff”) and began my journey. After studying various mediums, I entered my first art show and won First Place in Oils. A new career was born!
I soon realized that my love for cats was the constant evolving inspiration for most of my work. I particularly enjoy sharing their beauty, mystery and whimsical nature.
While my work is realistic, I enjoy adding a bit of humor (realism with a twist). Animals (especially cats) are my favorite subjects and I hope people who see my work are inspired to treat them all with kindness and dignity.
