About

 

Karin Kohn is a self-taught artist who finds her joy in combining bold colors with daring patterns. She got her start by making bags and other accessories for friends and family. As more requests came in, she began doing art shows. Having grown up attending shows with her mother, she was very comfortable in this setting, and fell in love with the possibilities that came about by combining her love of color, art, and social interaction. As she discovered herself as an artist over the last decade, she has added many items to her repertoire, including mixed media artwork, many sewn fiber items, and digital prints. She was a member of the Board at the Fulton Street Artisan Market, and takes great pride in the Grand Rapids local area art movement. She takes great delight in participating in the Festival of the Arts in downtown Grand Rapids, which she has attended since she was a child. Her work has been featured on the cover of On the Town Magazine as well as in an article in The Grand Rapids Press. Never losing the passion for her work, Karin is still driven by the love of color, the thrill of discovering a new technique or piece, and the joy of seeing a customer smile.
