Welcome to Wet Paint. Thank you for visiting.
I’m Karen Shapiro. I write the entries and unless otherwise noted, I take the photos and do the illustrations. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I still live here with my husband Ira, and our two grown children.
Ira and I run a mom and pop stationery shop called Ira’s Peripheral Visions. We design announcements, note cards and invitations for the general public. We also create all sorts of print and web promotion (theater programs, postcards, flyers, press kits) for dance companies and dance studios. Studio Directors can find out more about our services here. We’ve been in business since 1983, online since 1996.
After hours, I can be found in my studio writing, drawing and designing, or wandering Brooklyn’s beaches and shores.
Some of my dance reviews are sponsored by Body Wrappers/Angelo Luzio.
