Karen Neff Kelly
The relationship of line, shape, color and balance, giving
rise to distinct qualities, has a subtler manifestation:
the interplay between light, sound, space and time.

I've been painting yantras for over 17 years. It began as a curiosity and has now
become a spiritual journey - a delightful meditation and an adventure of painting
subtle energies and discovering these energies in myself, others and everywhere.
In 2005, I began studying with Dr. V Ganapati Sthapati. This has inspired me to look
into the underlying principles of aesthetics, visual arts and yantras. I serve on the
Board of Directors of the American University of Mayonic Science.
I have a Masters Degree in Human Communication which I've taught at the college level.
I am on the Board of Directors of Each One Teach One, No More Gap, an educational organization
dedicated to enriching the language environments of children, promoting self-confidence, curiosity and the
motivation to learn.
For 18 years I owned a popular art school. Having the privilege of creating and
teaching art to others inspired my own journey as an artist.
I am the art teacher at St Elizabeth's School of Denver.
I've practiced eastern meditation for many years, and I've taught meditation to
over 1,000 people.
