Karen Weinberg is a native Washingtonian but has lived in several different places, including parts of the Southwestern United States and in Europe. She now resides in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, just off the Appalachian Trail on top of a mountain she lovingly refers to as "Witch Mountain." This is in part due to the whimsical fog that often veils its precipitous peaks. Her inspiration comes from nature, and much of her work features elements of the living world. Karen is a mixed media artist and primarily works with alcohol ink on glass or tile. This medium allows her to create one of a kind colorful pieces of art. As a dedicated naturalist, she strives to use cycled or re-cycled material. This results in creating slight variances in each work that make her art creations even more unique. Karen’s work has been shown in galleries and shows in Fairfax, Fredericksburg, Front Royal, Luray and Vienna, Virginia. She is a member of the Lalo Advisory Board.
