Karen J Jones Fine Arts
I received my training at both the MFA School and Art Institute in Boston. I started painting over 20 years ago. My attempt is to create a serenity and solitude so difficult to find in today's rapidly changing world.
I work in both pastels and acrylics. Pastels give me the soft, slightly out-of-focus look that I'm so attracted to and acrylics have a brilliance and vibrancy in color that look and feel like oils. Recently I've been using a palette knife to "carve" the paint onto the canvas creating a 2-dimensional effect.
I teach both mediums at the Newburyport Art Assoc (MA) and have held many workshops and private lessons in my studio.
