Karen painted in Watercolor most of her years in Washington, DC. When she moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, however, she started painting en plein aire and changed her medium to oil, which she found easier to use on location. She painted in plein aire competitions in the Mid-Atlantic, Canada and Florida. Most recently she paints most of her paintings in the studio from smaller studies. Her passion in painting has been to capture the ever-changing qualities of light on the landscape, specializing in boats and waterways.
