Karen is very proud to be Annie Sloan's first Painter in Residence in the United States!


Karen, a New Jersey native, studied graphic design in Philadelphia at Moore College of Art and Design. A creator of art her entire life, Karen is an avid painter and sketcher. Her favorite medium to work with was oil paint, that is, until she was introduced to Chalk Paint® by her sister, Patty Seaman


In her private studio, Karen enjoys painting mainly a series of scenics. Ireland, Italy, and local scenes of Monmouth County, NJ are a few themes of her many paintings. Karen's paintings derive from pictures she photographs herself, and then paints using Chalk Paint®.
