About this artist
Born in West Germany, Karin came to the U.S. as a teen when her father, an engineer for Volkswagen, was transferred to Pennsylvania. Eventually, the family moved to El Paso, Texas, where Karin was exposed to ranching. Though she loved the Western life, Karin pursued an education and career in commercial illustration. The two converged when she began creating western paintings for shows and galleries. Karin now lives on a ranch in Utah where she gets firsthand knowledge for her art.
