Karine's practice includes wood on panel, drawing and collage. Her sensibilities drive her towards the adoption of miniature techniques. Recently, with Shifting Frames, she had the opportunity to discover traditional Indian miniature and learn their techniques from the forerunners of Indian miniature, Ajay and Vinita Sharma.
