I love the ever changing fluidity and randomness of nature. Nature is not only beautiful but unpredictable. It is a joy to paint. Painting is my freedom of expression, and I love seeing my brushstrokes and emotionality on the canvas.
I have usually intended a journey on the canvas for the viewer. There is a movement around the canvas to keep the eye and mind going. This may be done with color or with brushstrokes.
I received my BFA from the University of Connecticut, and am a juried artist for oil painting with the Guild. I am also a member of Western New York Artist Group, and Ontario County Arts Council. I regularly participate and display at their member shows.
My studio is located at 3915 North Buffalo Road, Suite 3, Orchard Park NY.
Karen has cards and prints available at the Roycroft Copper Shop and Thin Ice in Buffalo.
