About Karen: American Abstract Artist

—Studio in France

I have always been inspired by the colors here in Southern France. When I studied art and painting in Aix-en-Provence, a town just an hour south of here, I was stimulated by the clear air and serene beauty of the countryside.

This past summer, I designed a new studio space in the old barn behind my parents home. The sweeping view across the valley overlooks the base of the French Alps and the hillsides of Mount Ventoux. I feel a connection to this place that inspires my art and my soul.
