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.
