Karen Hale

"Using the basic elements of color, design, and texture, I create a vibrant and opulent canvas which both pleases and stimulates the art lover. The absence of recognizable objective forms leads you on your own journey of discovery."

Karen Hale's artist father taught her to use power tools by the time she was eleven, while her mother taught her the home arts. Her fascination with materials even at that early age led to her artistic growth. Today, she is able to look anywhere around her and see line, form, and texture, and to transfer these ideas to a canvas. The ability to use layered color brings each piece to a captivating conclusion.

Hale constructs her paintings with layers of thick and thin color that is washed, glazed, or scumbled, In her Serenity Series, she use the smooth canvas to let the colors work, flow, and interact with each other. She may use acrylic paints, mediums, papers, fabric, metallic leafing, chalk pastels, or graphite. The results are a delight of color and texture, resulting in depth that draws the viewer in.

Karen Hale has been a professional artist for more than 45 years. She learned at her father's side, and even though she has no formal training, she has demonstrated a natural mastery of the arts. Over the years, she has worked in many art forms and therefore has the understanding of how various materials work together--and she dares to try.
