For three decades, Karen H Salup has been intriguing audiences across the country with her paintings. A native New Yorker, Karen’s work has been featured in several galleries and exhibits throughout New York with solo shows at Viridian and Jain Marunouchi.
A member of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), Salup has won awards for her contributions to their national exhibits. Using acrylic, watercolor, and pastels on canvas and paper, Salup creates a world that vibrates with bold colors and bright light paired with brushstrokes that evoke a strong sense of movement and energy. Her paintings begin with a theme of nature, but invariably evolve into an imaginative creation that invites interpretation from the audience. While many artists choose to paint in only one genre, Karen’s work is influenced by all styles and runs the gamut from Impressionism to Deconstructionism to Abstract Expressionism.
