"Creating Movement Through Color"

Karen's colorful whimsical style of painting brings smiles to many as they enter her gallery.  Her use of bold colors has been praised as "Happy, Intriguing, and Vibrant."  Her favorite subjects include tropical plants, dragonflies, butterflies and vineyards.  Some of her most recent works have had more of a "Pop Art" feel to them.  She believes art should be an uplifting experience and a celebration of life.  She started painting in 2007 and soon realized her talent to be more than just a hobby.  She has collectors worldwide and has shown extensively in the Sacramento area.
