Karen Klink is born in Beirut, has developed an early interest in collecting happy meal toys, enjoying great Lebanese food, and inventing bedtime horror stories to scare herself and her little cousins at night. To give shape to these fascinations, she decided one day to become an illustrator. Mission accomplished, our dearest Karen.
I am fascinated by the way in which people personify or objectify animals and nature; the way in which the human view of an animal can render it into an object of utility, or a trustworthy companion, or a monstrosity, regardless of that creatures true nature. It is this process of transforming the animal that inspires my work, and gives it its often dark undertones.
