Caren Klein is a New England artist that focuses on social issues. Her work is based off her experiences with minorities and other diverse communities. Color is a big part of her pieces. Her art invites the viewer to create their own narrative.
Growing up in the 1960’s racially divided south with blatant prejudice. Caren learned first-hand about mistreatment being a Jewish minority, understanding how discrimination effects oneself. Being a sensitive human being she found refuge in creating art.
Caren has traveled with backpack to countries in Central , South America and Europe experiencing how other cultures live.
