Sioux City artist Karen Chesterman creates beautiful paintings through countless layers of marks to achieve a perfect balance of colors. She received art degrees from both Briar Cliff University and University of South Dakota. The three pairs of organic, roughly oval shapes, running vertically in the left half of the painting, are based on an image of an African soul catcher.
