Have you ever wanted to learn how to Zentangle and watercolor at the same time? This is the best way to start. It is so much FUN!

Being and an artist takes practice. Do you want to know how I got started? Hi, I'm Karen, and this is how I got started as a professional Illustrator.


This is what my students are saying.


This class exceeded my expectations!

I really enjoyed this class, it was easy to follow and it took me out of my comfort zone to paint flowers that are whimsical and not realistic, and the teacher made it easy to do.

Karen is very clear and guides you step-by-step in the creative process! It makes it easy to follow her instructions. Great job

— Marco S.


As a beginner artist, I truly appreciated your “ease” in your demeanor: you are very approachable, Karen, and easy to be with. Your projects have a positive aura, confident yet not intimating which allows a pleasant environment to create art!  

I loved your workshops ...

I hope you come paint with me!!

I am a native Texan born and raised in Dallas, now living in southern California.

I first started painting in watercolors on a hillside overlooking Lake Geneva while attending the American College of Switzerland.

Along the way, I taught a variety of art classes for ages 4 to 85. My first teaching experience was right out of college, teaching summer art camps at a Montessori school in Texas. Now I teach watercolor, acrylic, oil pastel, and oil painting. What do you want to learn? Let me know.

I hope you will sign up to play in the water with me.
