I found an old portrait that I sketched and then painted. Funny but I just noticed how similar it is to a sketch that led me to want to be an artist.
My grandfather found an old sketchbook in his basement that had belonged to the previous owner. He gave it to me, and I must have looked at that book hundreds of times. I was twelve years old and I believe that was what made me want to draw. Funny how it's the little things that lead us to our destiny in life.
So, then I took the drawing and digitally painted the next ladies.
- Karen's Sketchbook
- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
