Matson Art and Design

e-mail Karen



For over 30 years I've taught students from middle school through college how to express themselves creatively. I've nurtured, cajoled, prodded and pushed them to use their imaginations and talents in ways that allow them to freely explore their ideas without fear of failure.

Well, now it's my turn.

Teaching is in my blood, but so is art. I'm expanding my own artistic pursuits in painting, drawing, and polymer clay jewelry and will be showing my work both in my studio as well as in local venues in and around Southwest Michigan.

I'm also really excited to introduce, an online store where you can find great gifts including one-of-a-kind jewelry, paper notecards/boxes/journals, and digital floral illustrations.
