Karen Watkins' Profile
Welcome to my Etsy shop:
I am a full time artist/crafter/illustrator living in Colorado and originally from Indiana. I love that people all over the world can buy my art from Etsy. I mostly paint but after I started my Etsy shop I added my needle felted sculptures and t-shirts.
My acrylic contemporary paintings can be colorful and whimsical and also surreal, strange, creepy (in a good way) and have a narrative. All my paintings are done in a illustrative style. I like to paint mostly in a matte, flat way on canvas, but sometimes on wood I paint transparently to show the wood grain. I paint on canvas and wood.
My favorite subjects for my art are animals, women, environments, houses, skulls, and mythical creatures…
