About The Author


Karen loves teaching the wonder of color! Karen and her Goddaughter, Jacquelyn would often play through crafts, coloring or simply exploring nature. “These were some of the happiest times watching her create art or identifying colors in their natural environment”. Jacquelyn learned all of her primary and secondary colors so very young, so now it was time to step it up! Soon enough, she was identifying colors such as periwinkle, teal & chartreuse. She became curious on how these colors were made, so she used her simple art supplies to mix colors to create these newly discovered shades. Each time became a little color adventure! The fun continued with Karen’s Nephew Aiden and Niece Juliet. They played and connected through the creation of art and exploring color. Crayons, markers, chalk and paint are a form of communication often before a child is able to form their first sentence. “Mixing colors can be exciting and help children create a mood, feeling, or an expression of themselves through their own art and imagination. Teach a child to explore the world of color and just watch as the creativity begins!”
