April Artist - Karen Bagnard

The Coffee Gallery is pleased to present the artwork of Karen Bagnard.

Karen Bagnard is a local Altadena artist.  She is largely self-taught and continues to learn from the artists around her.  She has displayed her work in this and surrounding communities most of her life, as well as San Francisco and Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  Working with pen and ink, watercolor pencils and washes, collage and acrylics, her inspiration, in part, is derived from the joy she finds in her life.

This exhibit is a celebration of the artist's joy and gratitude.  Moving out of her "comfort zone" of drawing, Karen has created some bold, bright canvases with brush and paint.  She hopes her work will spark a kindred spirit in her viewers!  Enjoy!
