Karen Scharer’s work reflects decades of art study, and a perspective enriched by travel, studies in natural resource management, and a 17-year career in technology. During her 36-year successful painting practice, Scharer’s work has transitioned from realism to abstraction, and from watercolor to acrylic to oil, a medium which has now completely captured her focus and passion.
Scharer’s large, colorful paintings have been featured in dozens of solo and group shows and received many awards. Her work is represented in galleries across the US, and is included in hundreds of public, private, and corporate collections.
Karen Scharer is based in Pueblo West, Colorado where her home and studio sit beneath dramatic skies just minutes from the beautiful Arkansas River, and a short drive from some of Colorado’s most spectacular mountain peaks. The stunning and varied Colorado landscape is a constant source of inspiration for her intuitive painting approach.
