Once you have seen Karen Tarlton’s work, thereafter you will recognize her distinctive style. It begins with her command of the palette knife, however other elements contribute to her “owning the canvas” with unique use of color, depth, texture and high energy. Her works are the type that you want to see when you wake up in the morning, or that you need to see for a spiritual lift anytime.
Having lived in California on the beach community where she is from, there is a pneuma that comes from having been there that sharpens one’s senses and awareness, maybe.
“I am a native of California but have traveled extensively. My interest in art dates back to my childhood. I was self-taught until college, graduated from The University of California at Davis, and also studied at the Corcoran School of Fine Art in Virginia. I have been married to a military officer for 23 years and I continue my studies today through workshops and seminars as we move across the country. I recently traveled to Europe and many of my current works reflect time spent painting there. I have been a full time professional artist for over ten years. My works are purchased by select clients for private collections across the United States. In addition, I am a member of the Arlington Artists Alliance and The Montgomery Art Guild. My works are highly collectible and hang in galleries and homes throughout the U.S. and Europe. A listed artist in the World Artist Directory, my work is currently on display at Masterpiece Framing & Gallery in New York, SACs Gallery in Montgomery Alabama, Galerie Severn in New Orleans, and Arlington Art Gallery in Virginia. My works were recently featured in the magazine Art Galleries and Artists of the South.”
