Artwork by Karen Garavalia
Karen draws her inspiration from the beauty in nature and her faith in God.
Working primarily in watercolors, Karen paints a variety of subjects, from landscapes to birds to religious art. She also works on commission to create beautiful House Portraits and Pet Portraits.
Recently Karen completed the illustrations for a new children's book, "Look with Your Spirit" by RJ Brandell, available on Amazon, and Barnes and Nobel.
Additionally, Karen has illustrated two book covers for Shirley Amendt's works, "Come, Follow Me", and "His Mighty Hand."
Watercolors are by far Karen's favorite medium to work in. She loves it's translucent qualities which enhance a sense of light, reflecting the brightness and beauty of creation.
Karen also likes working with acrylic paints and enjoys teaching adults painting with her own "Paint and Wine Retreats", as well as working with children, teaching both painting and drawing in her own after school classes and summer camps.
Karen does paint in oils occasionally and enjoys them as well. In addition to traditional mediums, Karen has worked in digital, through Procreate and Photoshop programs.
Karen sells her artwork at her online Etsy store, at the following link:
Here you can find many giclee prints, notecards, ornaments and other gift ideas available for purchase.
She also has a store on Redbubble.com under sacreartbykaren. There you can select from a limited number of designs to have printed onto everything from pillows to phone cases.
You are invited to email contact Karen if you are interested in commission work or just have a question. She will be glad to respond!
"Thanks again for visiting! I hope you enjoy your time here. God bless!" -Karen
