Artist of the Week

Karen Standridge

Karen cannot remember a time when she didn’t paint or draw. Before retiring from college teaching to paint full time, Karen had the good fortune to teach in Europe and South America. Consequently, her watercolors, oils, and acrylics are often inspired by scenes she enjoyed while traveling and working in such countries as Germany, Argentina, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Austria, France, and Mexico.
