Karen Miller -- Katazome Artist

If you are a follower of my blog, you know I enjoy Japanese art and artmaking and enjoy sharing my finds from the Internet.  Karen's work is interesting and amazing.  I think you'll enjoy this video of Katazome Artist, Karen Miller.  You'll see her process of cutting stencils and painting her one of a kind fabrics.

If you want more of Karen, visit her blog.

Beautiful work, Karen!  Thanks for sharing and I wish you continued magic.

That was amazing to watch, such beautiful work and wonderful technique. I have done paper cutting, it is time consuming when I did intricate designs, cannot imagine doing what she does and the process of painting and resist, but you can see it is worth it with the beautiful results. I have a set of Japanese water colors that we bought about 30 years ago at the art festival. We bought one, one year and the next year, got a set of longer framed paintings to go with it. It is with birds and butterflies.

Hi, Debbie. Glad you enjoyed the video. Do you use your set of Japanese watercolors? I imagine anything you do turns out just beautiful. Paper cutting--have never tried it, but I can imagine it's time consuming. Birds and butterflies--two of my favorite images that show up in my paintings.
