I am motivated by an unquenchable thirst for learning, for change, for new ideas. My personal satisfaction and fulfillment come from constant change and continued evolution. Painting and creating are the methods I use to guarantee my progression as a human being.
I am viscerally impassioned by color, which I take full advantage of by choosing the fullest range of colors in my palette while creating. Through my practice of intuitive painting I feel I am able to express intangibles of my essence with truth and honesty on canvas. This passion of uncovering essence through painting, gives me a deep sense of belonging.
Karen Isailovic is a creative visionary. She opened her business, Root Studio, in Columbia in 2017. Beginning in 2002 she began training as a painter through courses in the continuing studies program at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC. In 2015 Karen dove deep into abstract painting, which continues to be her chosen genre to paint intuitively.
Karen sells and exhibits her work locally. She has experience curating exhibits, the largest project showcasing over 50 artists. There are four pivotal “seeds” which nurtured Karen’s vision for Root Studio. They are: openness, community, innovation, and wellness.
Karen is extremely passionate about the creative process and dedicates her life’s work to inspiring and encouraging others to utilize creative practice for well-being.
