Rhode Island artist Karen Rand Anderson graduated with honors from Rhode Island School of Design in 1977 with a BFA in ceramics, and in 2010 received her MFA in mixed media studio art through the Vermont Studio Center/Northern Vermont University master's program in Johnson, VT. She has completed residencies 
in Bulgaria through the Griffis Foundation/Orpheus Foundation, at I-Park Artist’s Enclave in East Haddam CT, at Vermont Studio Center, and in France at Chateau Orquevaux. She shows regionally and nationally in juried, invitational and solo exhibitions.

Karen's deep involvement with visual art has spanned many different mediums, including glass and ceramics. Her mixed-media sculpture utilizes natural materials, appropriated objects and charred paper; her large format works on paper often relate to her sculpture. The metaphor and imagery in her early work revolved largely around the concepts of intimacy and relationship, evolution and the search for the spiritual. 

As a painter, Anderson’s recent work focuses on an exploration of landscape, moving into abstraction, informed by intuitive mark-making, layering of color, gestural brushwork, and spontaneity. The mixed media paintings are colorful references to vista and memory, drawing the viewer into a personal experience of place.
