The Art of Karen Y. Buster
- Mixed Media,
Baltimore MD native Karen Y. Buster was reared in a private Artis colony. Karen is blessed to have grown up in a household that encouraged creativity and recognized the source of her art which was a gift from a higher power. Karen’s journey to the world of fine arts came via her t-shirt design business Bustertizin. Her eyes have been trained since age 5 to distinguish between negative and positive space thanks to her attraction to photography negatives and dreaming in black and white. These keys hold the significance in Buster’s art and are the inspiration for her signature black and white X-acto knife cut outs.
