Artist Profile - Karrie Hovey

Our last visual artist for this round of residents is Karrie Hovey, a installation artist from California who is creating new environments and landscapes from the things we cast aside. Karrie works with plastic, paper and cardboard to grow beautiful gardens full or colorful flowers, plants, bamboo and creeping vines. Her use of our discarded materials is an exploration of our consumer and consumptive lifestyles, and how that has removed us from the natural cycle of life. The gardens and installations Karrie creates are beautiful and inviting and the handiwork and time she spends creating the works is impressive in itself....Spiro Arts
