ABOUT DRUM KIT ART

Drum Kit ART began as an experiment in the exploration of alternative painting surfaces.

Graphic artists have airbrushed PVC plastic drum wraps for decades.
However, I am a fine artist and plastic is not a viable surface for fine art materials.
In order to paint the drum kit utilizing fine art materials and techniques,
I developed a proprietary drum wrap composed of environmentally-friendly
materials which will accept the application of fine art paint.
The drum wrap reacts to the elements in much the same way
the wood does in a drum kit and expands and contracts,
rather than constricts the wood, as PVC plastic does.
The Drum Wraps are Available Exclusively from Karen Joy

I then developed a process to transform a drum kit into a 3-dimensional sculptural element.

As the viewer circles the kit each angle reveals a new composition.
The artwork on the individual drum works in unison with the others to complete the sculpture.

The Perfect Marriage of Fine Art and Music
