Tragus Media’s purpose is to share information about art and design with those eager to know more, improve their craft and take their work farther, faster. We publish artists willing to candidly share their methods and ideas. Our books are a mix of technique, know-how, memoir and practical information that is geared to help artists and designers get farther, faster, in their chosen field.
Our mission is to capture artist’s technique and intention to make this knowledge and experience available for practicing artists, students, art educators and art conservators in their practice.
Tragus Media was founded by Karen Kappe to help artists two ways. First by publishing their experience and through this sharing, help other artists build upon what has gone before to forge their path forward in the arts. Karen is an accomplished award-winning artist who successfully navigates a career in art and publishes relevant information to help artists create their path. To help make this happen, Karen brings her expertise and that of highly skilled artists together with a team of publishing professionals eager to help artists get farther, faster.
