|An Artist's Inspiration |
At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we are proud to introduce to you, Karen Cruden, one of America's premier folk artists. Before Karen became the renown artist she is today, she spent much of her adult life as an art teacher. She was encouraged by the children she taught, to create what was in her heart; taking inspiration from their carefree innocence and approach to various art forms. However, it was long before her teaching days that Karen was exposed to art. Her father, also an accomplished artist, helped to foster much of the creativity and heart we see in Karen's work currently.
