Karen Schauber

Born and raised in Montreal, Karen Schauber has called Vancouver home for the past three decades. Schauber cultivated a lifelong passion for the landscape paintings of the Group of Seven during her many visits to the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario, while she was a university student in Toronto in the early ’80s. Now, coupled with her obsession for flash fiction, her work appearing extensively in literary journals and anthologies including Brilliant Flash Fiction, Bending Genres, The Ekphrastic Review, and Fiction Southeast, she has brought this inspired artistic and literary project to life as The Group of Seven Reimagined: Contemporary Stories Inspired by Historic Canadian Paintings.
