Hi, I'm Karen!
I'm a full-time multi-media artist, instructor, business owner, author of 18 art instructional books, and I've been featured in numerous worldwide art magazine publications.
I'm the founder of Awesome Art School where I teach online creative courses to adults of all backgrounds and ages. I will be your creative hostess with the mostest all year long!
Originally a Boston area native, I currently live in Apex, NC with my computer-geek husband, 3 boys and 4 girl fur babies.
My philosophy towards teaching art and the reason why my students are so successful is based on the fact that I am keenly aware that people learn BEST when they are so busy having fun they don't even realize the strides they are making.
As such, FUN is built right into the curriculum, making it incredibly easy and fast for students to advance.
Through my prolific and popular books, 3 awesome Art Clubs at Awesome Art School, and two YouTube channels that host over 400 free art tutorials, I have positively impacted the lives of tens of thousands worldwide of all levels who want to learn how to create beautiful things.
And I believe in fairies - for obvious reasons (and I even have a podcast about it 😆).
