In Karen's FIRST COMPETITION
while still in college, she won first prize for her oil painting "Hope" at the Indiana Intercollegiate Salon of Art, a national competition.  Her professor of painting suggested she enter a piece. The unexpected prize marked the beginning of her life developing a career in the arts. Her creative works span the worlds of painting, drawing, illustration, photography, publishing, serigraphy, weaving, felting fibers in addtion to having developed a professional career in the world of graphic design in the US, England, and finally in Maine where she has lived year round since 1978. She is also a Registered Maine Guide which skills have enabled her to explore throughout the state on rivers, lakes, the sea, and woodland terrains.  The head of the DePauw University art department advised her following a liberal arts course in freehand drawing live models: "Drop everything you may have planned and BE AN ARTIST!" (Karen says:  I am forever grateful for the insight of A. Reid Winsey  and his encouragement to pursue a path I never would have considered had it not been for his advice while I was a liberal arts student at DePauw University.)

 

 

 

In 2012 we bought the former Lubec library (now gallery/store) and the historic Lubec Grange to save them, preserve them, improve them with new roofs and exterior paint and restoration/remodeling of interiors. The grange ball room is now magnificent! The modern upstairs studio apartment in the gallery will inspire many business possibilities. We've run a successful gallery and have had an exciting run for all the events in the grange for the enjoyment of many. We are ready for retirement on our farm in Lubec.  Please contact us if you would like to discuss purchase.
