The Healing Gifts website belongs to Karen Endres.
Karen Endres grew up in a European village in North Texas, a farming and ranching area, where pioneering stories are still being told. Her studies in literature and her painting trips to France provided additional experiences and reference materials for expressing herself in art. She paints symbols and metaphors from these backgrounds to understand her life.
Her artwork includes: writing children's adventure cartoon books, painting a book of geometric images and symbols seen inwardly, painting her dreams, and teaching workshops on expressing one's inner voice in art.
"I have lived in Bellvue, Colorado, since 1993, and I am inspired by the local hills and waters. I like my paintings to be full of fun, whimsy, and color. I sometimes call my art expressive symbolism."
