Wyoming artist Karen Barton has been honing her skills as a portrait artist since 1988 working mainly in pastels and has fulfilled hundreds of portrait commissions to date. With her education and career history in graphic art, combined with the precise realism required of portraiture, she has, in recent years, expanded her subject choices and experimented with a variety of style and media options. Her paintings range from stylized and colorful wildlife in acrylic, an in-depth exploration of native regalia and dance in oils and pastels, serene and clear ponds and trees as real as life in oils, to the occasional colored pencil floral. Quote: 'I enjoy the freedom to paint what inspires me, and to try new ways to express that inspiration. My goal is to use the magic of art to give you, the viewer, that same inspiration I feel.'
