Karen Wagner Kinser has a background in fine art, art history and graphic design. She received a Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida, Gainesville - and spent 20 years in the 'advertising world' as an art director, before returning to her first loves - drawing and painting.
Kinser's most familiar subjects - Women at contemplative 'work'.
Lively oil paintings of Fruit, Vegetables and Floral subjects - all singing with color and movement -
fill Kinser's art studio at present. The artist's hobby orchard and vegetable garden provide most of the inspiration for her new work.

Karen Kinser has always been intrigued with human nature and expression. They say that the 'eyes are the window to the soul'. And that is the aim of this artist . . .
to capture a bit of the essence of a person.
'My goal is to create a painting that can 'stand on its own' as a work of art. I am not content to merely capture the likeness of the subject'.
