My name is Karen Crandall and I have lived in Alaska since 1973. I have been an artist since 1970 when I started to study art in college at the University of Nevada. I joined the Alaska Artist guild in 1974 when the artists were displaying work at the University Mall. I have always worked with acrylics and lots of texture calling my acrylic relief.

In 1998 I began to study Printmaking and Watercolor art forms. Since that time I joined the Alaska Watercolor Society in which I have been a member since 2001. I have entered my art in many juried shows and have a painting currently on display at the Anchorage Museum. It is called Sunset at the Old Glen. The painting is of a brilliant red and yellow sunset reflected on the Knik River. It will be on display until February. I love nature of all sorts especially Alaska's sunsets and wildlife. Aspects of light is an area that I have been concentrating on. I have my art at several galleries: The Blue Holloman Gallery/Anchorage, The Girdwood Gallery of Visual Arts /Girdwood, Arctic Rose Gallery/ Anchorage, and Dancing Leaf Gallery/Talkeetna. In the month of February my art will be on display at the Town Square Gallery beginning on the second Saturday. My art will consist of pastel chalk, acrylic, watercolor, and printmaking pieces. Another area I plan to experiment with is collage and watercolor. I hope you will come and see my art at some of these galleries.
