Introduction: I try to deliver more that what the client expects. I aim to spark joy in others with my art! Trained in classic oil painting for 30 years, I challenged myself a few years ago to paint in a much larger scale. As it turns out, I LOVE painting murals because it's so transformational! I'm naturally attracted to work that relates to the ocean but will adapt to suit the client's needs. Allow me to transform and your wall(s) to attract more business, maximize zen or articulate interest or vibrancy. I have also been triple vaccinated for Covid-19.

Karen is an amazing artist and muralist. With just a few general ideas of what we were looking for she did extensive research and put together exactly what we wanted on a difficult bedroom wall space. When working her concentration was complete and it all came together in a surprisingly short time. Highly recommend her to anyone else

Karen is amazing--professional, punctual and very talented. She took my ideas for our mural and brought them to life. We love our mural and would love to bring her back for more murals!

She is very professional and willing to work with me on my project. I had a significant change mid way through my project and she was very flexible and accommodating to my change.

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to work with you on this project. It was a fast turn-around deadline but we did it! So happy you both are thrilled with my work. With gratitude, Karen

I would have to say that Karen is a very gifted thought for artists and she puts her whole self into the work that she does and the outcome is beautiful

Karen was fantastic to work with. She was always prepared, on time, very responsive and her work process was impeccable. We have small children and renters, so I really appreciated how neat she kept her work space while she was painting and how she left it at the end of the day. I'm booking her for our bathroom next. Why use wallpaper if you can have a custom mural?!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    If you do not have a wall/surface that you have permission to install a mural on, please do NOT contact me yet. Each project is unique and so is the pricing. Please see above question about “my advice” and on minimal fee. In general, once you decide to contact me through thumbtack, I am billed a referral fee to receive your contact info. We set aside a time for a free phone consultation to learn more about your vision. To secure current pricing and availability, a deposit of 50% is required. I offer a 10% discount if full payment is paid up front and other seasonal discounts.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. Phone conversation. ( to determine style, complexity, square footage, amount of detail, inspiration, and of course to see if good fit for each other) Please have exact measurements of walls(s) to be painted and a photo ready to share. 2. Mood board conversation; This conversation can be about 15 min long to find the preferred style and timeline. Review of payment options/ discounts/ schedules. 3. Receipt of deposit marks decision to schedule installment date and an agreement is signed by both parties. My prices increase every 6 months. The deposit will secure the contract payment terms prior to the future price increase.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I went to art school in the bay area, but did not complete my BFA... so I would say I'm self-taught. I began drawing and painting at a young age and continued to enjoy painting thru pharmacy school. In the beginning of my career, I worked with all mediums but preferred oil on canvas. As an oil painter/fine artist I sold my work in galleries and business establishments in SF and NY. Recently in 2006, I expanded my portfolio to include mural work.
