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 subject - women. Women at contemplative 'work'. Relationships between individuals - or the lack there of. Portrait commissions, Still Life and 'Fantasy Florals' fill the artist's studio at present.
Portrait commissions are accepted - contact the gallery for more information.

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'.
