Artist, Teacher, Sojourner

“Oh my Stars!”

Creating art has the power to beautify, inspire, and empower. I strive to pass this on to my students and those who view my artwork. I believe we were all created by the divine, and as He is the ultimate creator and we are created in His image, we are created to create!

“I’m Karen, a life long artist and educator who looks for the playfulness and childlike wonder in our world. I love sharing my passion for art and play though my teaching and mixed media paintings. The marks and subtle things you will see in my acrylic abstract mixed media paintings reflect this playful spirit”

I currently live and work in Bend, OR. If you live in the Central Oregon area, take a look at the classes I offer, or contact me if you are interested in a school residency. You can see some of my work at the SageBrushers Art Gallery in town, or contact me for a studio tour! Scroll to the bottom to see other local places that I am showing my work. If you are visiting our town and would like to see my work in person please contact me here.
