We would like to welcome Karen Hackenberg, who is joining us at the residency for the month of April! Born in New Jersey and raised in rural Connecticut, Karen developed her first connections to the natural world on the shores of Long Island Sound. She earned her BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and upon graduating moved west.
During her residency, she plans to make preliminary studies and sketches in pencil, paint, or iPad, and hopes to further develop the social and environmental themes in her artwork. This is her second residency at Chalk Hill Artist Residency. During her stay she hopes to find inspiration for new artwork, while having the freedom and space to relax and allow her mind to wander.
