"Karen is inspired by the reflective magic of water and in capturing naturalistic compositions that accent her effective use of color, light, and shadow. Her style brings the realism of the subjects to life while rendering her own creative interpretation. "
"Took Karen's class and enjoyed it very much. She was very good at instruction. Loved it. Karen, look forward to more classes."
"The class was a lot of fun. It was a lovely group of women. Karen did a nice job working with each of us. It was my first oil painting class and I really enjoyed it. The class was very reasonably priced and I'd recommend it for someone who is interested in learning about painting with oils. After only 2 weeks we all had something to show for it and each painting had its own personality."
"Congratulations! You have won one of the 3 People’s Choice awards from the Nature Art Exhibit. Actually, you got more votes than anyone has in the time we have been doing the show.
We will be sending you a token of our appreciation for your fine work – a $25 gift certificate to Arlene’s Art Store. Thank you once again for teaching all of your wonderful programs and for being a participant in the show. Best wishes for a successful future with your artwork. "
