Karen Hewitt Hagan Description

"She has an innate sense of color and composition and when it is coupled with the way she handles the media, magic occurs."   - Quote from Theresa Golas, Director of The Iredell Museums (Statesville, NC)  published in American Art Collector Magazine, August 2006.

Painter Karen Hewitt Hagan is living the quintessential life of an accomplished artist. The Florence, South Carolina native teaches plein air painting in Italy, the Bahamas, and France. She also owns the Hagan Fine Art Gallery and Studio in downtown Charleston, displaying her work alongside the paintings of artists from far-away lands such as Russia & Germany. Her own works are collected nationally as well and are in the permanent collection of fine resorts like The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island. Though she’s traveled the world, lived aboard a boat (aptly named Plein Air) for over 8 years, she says Charleston continues to be her calm, stable source of inspiration.

“If I were marooned in just one place on earth, I’d want it to be Charleston. It’s nirvana here…funky, very close knit among the artists. We all collaborate a lot, share models and paint together. That’s inspiring in itself, but to get to do that in a city that is filled with such stunning light and beauty is way beyond what anyone could hope for.”

You might be surprised to learn that Hagan’s first memory of painting was when the artist was 32 years old—a relatively late age to find and pursue your passion. She describes her paintings as “painterly, loose, and juicy. They’re colorful, and hopefully, full of light. I guess most people call me an impressionistic landscape painter, but I resist putting titles on myself because I always want to explore. And while I hold true to traditional drawing and compositional methods, I want to experiment and push the boundaries of painting.”

Hagan is also a breast cancer survivor. That ordeal drastically changed her perspective on her life and work. “I’ve had a whole lot of challenges and changes in the last few years; moving back to dry land, becoming single and going through breast cancer.  I’ve found that my paintings always follow my heart, and what’s happening with my emotions usually flows through my brush.  I’m in a really good place now and feel very grateful to be healthy, happy, and painting every day!” says Hagan.  -- WORDS: MARCUS AMAKER , ART MAG (Charleston, SC)

Karen Hewitt Hagan Statement

"The Southern Landscape - I see it as a quickly changing canvas.  Most precious and yet the most exploited. I'm especially inspired by the pristine coastal landscapes that lace between our barrier islands and the sea. It's where I feel at home with my easel. And I'm very interested in the change that is happening around this area so quickly. Some of my favorite subjects are the unspoiled areas on the rustic edges of rural life.  I view our coastal landscape in the South with mixed feelings as development companies embrace conservation and natural resource preservation, all while they are still developing raw lands as quickly as possible.  My vision of the South through my painter's eye is a double image, one of richness in heritage of unspoiled lands, long marsh views, freshly turned farm fields, pristine beaches and abounding wilderness paired with the access to this richness through newly developed marinas, home sites and neighborhoods that fringe these areas. My work encompasses both the old and the new. I love nothing more than painting the quiet marsh-lands or a field in new bloom. It's my passion to paint these areas...preserving yesterday's & tomorrow's view – one canvas at a time."
