Karen Weihs (Highlands, NC)
Karen Weihs was born and raised in Charleston, SC. A graphic designer by trade, Karen now paints with an intuitive response to compositions that abstract the basic shapes and components of graphic design.
She studied under LaMar Dodd at the University of Georia and is inspired by the vast talent of Frank Licciardi. With over 20 years experience, Karen is an accomplished Modern Impressionist who uses a variety of texture and color to create wonderful abstract paintings. Her work is in collections all over.
"I use various sizes of palette knives and large rushes to lay traditional opaque oil color down in thin to thick layers, then after it dries, I brush transparent color glazes to bring a luminous effect to the viewer." - Karen Weihs
