Keren Kroul works with watercolor on paper to create dense and rhythmic organic formations. Inspired by memories, neural pathways, and natural elements, they are fantastical landscapes of the mind.

Keren has exhibited regionally and nationally. She is a 2015 and 2017 recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and a 2017 Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist at the Rochester Art Center, Rochester, MN.
