"Dynamic composition and a unique viewpoint are the hallmarks of my pastel paintings. My work is rendered with a strong appreciation for the rigors of formal design coupled with a fearless array of color choices."

Karen is an award-winning artist, most recently Best in Show with the Arizona Pastel Artist Association. Karen is an elected member with the Salmagundi Club and the Lyme Art Association. She currently serves on the Board of the Pastel Society of America.

Karen has been invited to participate in “Pastels of the World in Bourbonnais” honoring American Women pastelists but this international exhibit was postponed due to the pandemic. Her work, however, will be on display in May 2021 at the Chateau de Louviere, Montlucon, France. In addition, Practique Des Art has featured this Exhibition and Karen’s process in Volume #53, August 2020.
