Karen Rhebergen

Karen Rhebergen (Whitecourt, AB) was born in Ontario but has called many places across Canada, home. It was while she lived in Yukon Territory that she began working in batik. The surroundings, the community and her growing family encouraged her to take on this form of art as a vocation, affecting the creation of hundreds of batiks and paintings.

The resist process of batik is an ancient art form. Karen couples the traditional method of batik with constant exploration of the possibilities of wax and dye. She plans her pieces with expressive linework, but as each layer of molten wax and fabric dye is incorporated, the results become more unexpected.
A recent transplant to Woodlands County, Karen has become inspired by Alberta’s diverse scenery and the people of this vast community. Her home studio practice, where she creates her batiks, also consists of music and art instruction.

Karen’s work can be found in private collections across Canada and around the world. Most recently, Karen’s work has been acquired by the Yukon Permanent Art Collection and Scouts Canada.
