Karen Feuer-Schwager received her BFA from the Tyler School of Fine Arts at Temple University in Philadelphia, continuing her studies at Le Centre de Gravure in Geneva, Switzerland, and the Don Stacy Studio in New York.  A multi-faceted artist, she expresses feelings, experiences, and dreams in a neo-expressionistic style.  Whether on canvas, Plexiglas, or Polaroid film, her work has a sensual and highly tactile quality developed over a lifetime of artmaking.

“My imagery is derived from my dreams, meditations, and emotions. It is a reflection of experiences—past and present—that influence each one of us as a collective. Formed from various materials, the surfaces of my art engage the viewer in a very tactile manner…yet, light is able to penetrate, creating translucent imagery.” —Karen Feuer-Schwager
