Karen Barton

Artist

Karen Barton resides in Buffalo WY and has been pursuing her art career since childhood. She was educated in graphics early in her college years and thereafter worked as a full time line artist in a studio called Keyes Art Service in Phoenix.

 

After moving to Gillette, as a wife and mother, she continued to freelance and in 1988 discovered pastels, and began her official career as a portrait artist. She has illustrated a published children's book and taught workshops during those years while continuing as a portraitist.

 

In the last 6 years she has explored acrylics and has produced a full range of subjects including wildlife and landscapes. Her work can be found in local and regional galleries in Wyoming and South Dakota.
