About the Artist

Karen Salup (American, b. 1949)

Abstract fine artist Karen Salup creates pure harmony with intuitive expressive lines and bold color palettes. Her richly textured mixed media paintings are delightfully intricate and emotive, conjuring a sense of mystery and imagination in connection with the natural world. Karen’s complex compositions translate mark-making, brushstrokes, and gestures into form, texture, color, and light. Each painting evolves uniquely through her self-created intuitive process. Throughout this journey, what starts as chaos gradually evolves into true visual poetry. Over the course of Karen’s extensive artistic career, her expressionistic artwork has been widely exhibited and has received numerous prestigious awards.
