A child of the 80's , she was inspired by the museums that the trains provided, the roof tops murals, tags and colors that brightened up a once dirty and dingy Bronx. Karen carried with her a notebook trying to draw what she saw. Soon the beats and streets of the Bronx gave birth to KayLove.


Karen was a graduate of the legendary High School of Art & Design. She then majored in Art with a concentration in Painting at Lehman College.
