Hello, my name is Karen Yarima Ramirez!
I am a freelance illustrator, storyboard artist, and animator.
I currently work at Ryman Arts as a Fellow, and
under their wonderful guidance, I am honing my skills in leadership
and project management. I believe that through art we can build
stronger and enriched communities.
Growing up with limited opportunities, I began to crave
positive changes in the communities around me.
It also became my primary focus in art. My artwork is about witches
and wizards finding themselves lost in "half-worlds" or
creating magic rituals to obtain more than they ever got in reality.
My artwork is about space bunnies wondering
if they’ll ever find a home in outer space. This deep desire
to find a community we belong in, the desire for
positive changes, is universal. I believe that if someone ever wished
for more than they ever got, they might be closer to witches, aliens, and magic than they think.
