Artist Statement
I have chosen to depict the heritage building at the Holy Cross Campusbecause it is a lovely structure and the complementary health programs move to the main campus in 2011. I have also painted a pair of healing hands to symbolize the learning there.

Artist Bio
Karen is a keen amateur artist who would abandon her computer and pick up a paintbrush full-time if it would pay the mortgage. After taking art classes in high school, her focus was on her writing career and family until 2004, when she began to rediscover her passion for art.
