Cover Art

Born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, Karin Dawn Best lived in Jamaica, England, and Canada before settling in the United States. She currently lives and works in northern Florida. It wasn't until she turned 50 that Karin decided to pursue her desire to become an artist. Thanks to the encouragement of friends and family, her "hobby" became a successful career. Although she has no formal training, her work has been included in a number of exhibitions and appears in embassies in Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Barbados, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Canada. Karin's art depicts landscapes, flowers, and the cultural lifestyle of her native homeland, both in oils and watercolors.
