  • About Me: Biography of Artist Karien Zachery

    Today my life and career is one of a professional painter, sculptor, wood-carver and singer.
    My first paid job as a visual artist in my hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts, where I worked as a courtroom sketch artist for the nightly news. Although the money was decent, the monotony and depressing energy of courtrooms quickly wore thin for me, confirming that I would never be happy as a portrait artist. I vowed that I would only pursue art as a profession if I could be creatively fulfilled in my approach. It would be nearly twenty years later before I would discover my signature medium: sculpting.
    Since then I’ve also embraced oil painting, mixed media and wood-carving. My introduction into the world of professional art began in Los Angeles, California in 1999, as a sculptor of three-dimensional ceramic faces mounted in frames. The faces are males, females and combinations of humans and animals, (specifically lions and black panthers). They are painted with blended color of browns, reds and yellows, to resemble the many shades of African skin and accessorized with authentic African fabrics, jewelry and hairstyles. My purpose is to pay homage to my royal African ancestry by representing them as kings and queens.
    Today I continue to work in all three mediums: painting, sculpting and wood-carving, as well as music and will always remain open to explore. I believe that as artists we are the creators of nothing, but are simply the vessels for whatever the universe chooses to channel through us.

    Through God All Things Are Possible…..Just Believe!
