Meet the Creator

Marnie Karger is a Minnesota native who is continually inspired by the lakes and rivers that surround her. Equally fascinated by the geological history of her subjects as by the process involved in rendering them in paper, Marnie describes her work as the perfect marriage of her science-laden education, and her life-long love of art. Though trained as a teacher, Marnie has always loved working with her hands, and paper has been an easy and accessible medium. Her work, rendering lakes, rivers, coastlines, and topographies in layers of richly colored paper is the result of years of experiments, fully planned ideas, and happy accidents. She works in her home studio in Shorewood, MN, with a second-story view on the bucolic neighborhood outside.
