Personal Profile


Meet Karen


Karen is known as a vibrant colorist for her exhilarating and emotionally rich paintings. She has exhibited her work in art shows and galleries spanning an award winning career and is known both nationally and internationally. She received numerous Scholastic Art Awards: 3 Gold Keys, 4 Bronze Stars, 5 honorable mentions. She then was inspired to earn a BFA and do post graduate work from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston.   Her career has led her from teaching to interior design, mural and faux painting, renovating and designing over 50 homes in Sarasota County Florida and Massachusetts, where she originally hails from.


“As life can be stressful and complicated, I enjoy depicting the 'Lighter Side of Life' using bright, complimentary colors. I want my paintings to make people smile and feel an emotional lift while viewing them. I started out with portraits and more realistic themes but now I am drawn to abstract or whimsical themes to express the joy of living.”


Karen now paints at her studio in Sarasota, Florida. She has participated in group exhibitions locally at Creative Liberties, Venice Art Center, Art Center Sarasota, Manatee Art Center, and has several works currently at The Golden Image.
