    Palette knife painting directly on the canvas, in combination with a brush, because combining heavy texture that only a knife can create with applied brush transparent paint gives my work a greater feeling of depth and creates an amazing visual effect. Painted on a ¾” gallery wrapped stretched canvas and sides are painted, using highest quality artist oils. This painting would make a great addition to any art collection.

    Karen did a custom angel painting for my meditation room. I told her which of her prints I liked and what background colors I wanted. This is my second purchase of one of her custom, original angel paintings. They are stunning in person. Her communication is excellent. The painting turned out gorgeous! Highly recommend Karen's beautiful original artwork.

    I contacted Karen with a custom order as a gift for a friend. I am so glad I did! What I had envisioned in my mind, she brought to life on canvas. It is just perfect. Beyond the painting itself, she provided great communication about the process and timeline for shipping. I simply could not be more pleased and grateful!!!

    Beautiful & exactly what I wanted - very quick to answer any & all questions. I recommend Karen to everyone!

    Karen communicates very well, art was packaged with care & sent super fast; I absolutely LOVE how this angel turned out, she’s even more beautiful in person! So happy with all of my art, thank you again, Karen!! I’ll be back!!!
