Copper & Mixed Media Artist 

Karen Davis 

Nashville, Tennessee artist, Karen Davis uses copper and enamel paint to create tole botanicals that she plants into found containers and embeds into resin on oil-painted canvas. 

Her work is deeply influenced by the flowers her little girls picked from her garden; often finding the forgotten blooms in odd corners of her home on handkerchiefs. Being inspired by the shapes these pieces of fabric created, she started painting squares onto her canvases; placing her handmade florals just so. Her art centers around southern gardens, femininity, and her children.
