Karen Hampton is a resident artist at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell and a professor at MassArt in Boston. An artist of color, she creates art "that responds to the lives of my ancestors. My lens is anthropology. My medium is cloth - whether digitally printed, hand woven or aged linens - pieces are imbued with the hopes and visions of African American lives, telling their stories from a maternal perspective."
