Oil Painting and Frame-Making

(Use the arrow to see more)

 Karen Weber is a versatile artist with work in public and private collections in the US, Europe, and  Australia.

She is perhaps best known for her ability to capture unique quirks and personalities of animals ranging from blackbirds to elephants and fauna of any size and stripe in between. Whether her subject is animal,  landscape or purely imaginative, Karen’s favorite method of oil painting is alla prima, a wet-into-wet technique she uses masterfully to achieve spontaneity, liveliness, and character with quick, purposeful brushwork.

Most of Karen’s finished artwork is exceptionally organic in nature, starting with panels that she cuts and preps, through her frames that she makes herself, often with reclaimed barn wood.

Karen is the director of Art Plus Gallery in West  Reading. Her work can be seen there as well as in various other venues around Berks County.

She lives in St. Lawrence, Pennsylvania with her husband Kevin, and children Meilea and Rowan.
