After wondering late in life where my next chapter will lead me, my road is set in motion for art.   I am inspired with a passion to pursue color and design.  Painting gives me great joy and fulfillment.  I delight in the path that is set before me.


Karen discovered art by chance when she signed up for classes at a small shop.  Karen loved the color combinations and styles that her teacher was using to express fun images for decorating. After several classes, she recognized a gift and passion for painting.
An invitation to display and sell at a gift shop led to involvement in shows locally and regionally.  Always enjoying the outdoor shows, she was encourage to paint florals and landscapes.
Investigating a new challenge with a teacher of old masters, moved her in the direction of oil and painting on canvas.  Her work has gone international and is in corporate offices, places of business, and Fine Art galleries.
