Lynn-Marie Kara is an artist working in a variety of med ia...sculpture (stone, clay & wood), colored pencil, pen and ink, acrylics, water color, weaving's, mixed media and collage.  She attended both the University of Oregon and the Northwest College of Art; nevertheless, most of her skills are self taught through personal study and experimentation with various media.
Several of her earlier works focused upon the European Holocaust with an emphasis upon the personal stories.  One series portrays various Faces of Auschwitz,  using a variety of different styles, while another portrays the Children of Auschwitz.   These are not for sale and have been exhibited at the University of Oregon, Willamette University, Congregation Nerve Shalom (Portland, Oregon), Wood lawn United Methodist Church (Portland, Oregon), and the Wood lawn Art Show. 
Other works include portrayals of native Oregon plants, some unusual succulents, and whimsical images for children of all ages. As a lover of horses and dogs, she has also been drawn to portrayals of various animals. She also produced an original poetry/coloring book for children called A Spider On My Nose.   
Book illustrations by Lynn-Marie were also included in a book accompanying an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The book, The Russian Advantaged Book 1910-1934, used illustrations which were originally included in two art history works by Esther Jacobson of the University of Oregon (published by E.J.Br ill):  The Deer Goddess of Ancient Siberia: A Study in the Ecology of Belief and The Art of the Scythians: The Interpenetration of Cultures at the Edge of the Hellenic World. She is currently illustrating a new, as yet unpublished, book. In addition, one of the works from The Art of the Scythians will be included on the label for a display (at the Getty Villa in Malibu, California from June 14 - September 3, 2007) of the original gold Scythian phiale of multiple heads of Medusa.
Most of Lynn-Marie's works are available to purchase, either in the form of originals or prints.  A few are available for exhibit only.  In addition, she is available to portray your horse or other pet.
