Karen’s teaching style:

She values the meditative, intuitive, and flow-like experience and
mindset that calligraphy and other artistic expression makes
accessible to all of us. She encourages students to cultivate the
contemplative nature of this ancient art form, emphasizing the
service of scribes as guardians in the continuum of culture.

"If the day and night are such that
you greet them with joy,
and life emits a fragrance like
flowers and sweetly scented herbs,
that is your success . . .
All of nature is your congratulations."

-Henry David Thoreau
