In addition to her work as an occupational therapist, Karina also attended courses in drawing, painting and ceramics at the Fine Arts Academy in The Hague and the Rietveld Academy. She set up a workshop in Briare (45), then in Nevoy (45) and finally in Dampierre-en-Crot. She makes decorative pieces and sculptures by modelling and assembling slabs of clay. As a painter, she values multicolour. She has used the raku technique a lot to obtain contrasts of materials and colours. She also shapes objects in stoneware or porcelain, mainly vases, boxes and bowls. So many different mediums for creating decorations inspired by nature which blossom in a luminous and melodious colour harmony.
