Pedersen, Karen, Headshot 2020 DSC_0031

Karen is a self-taught artist living in Carstairs, Alberta.  She has a loose interpretive style that allows her the ability to portray feeling and emotions on the canvas.  

Having had the privilege to study with a number of notable Canadian and American artists she believes that art is a continuous process of study and learning.

Whatever the medium, her focus remains the same, to achieve a quality of movement, form and light. 

Her favourite quote is from Sergit Bongart:  "Paint all subjects.  Paint your first impression; that first glimpse which excites you."

Karen is represented by Leighton Centre Gallery.
