About ArtByKarlene

On Etsy since 2020

Being a working artist helps me to cope since my husband passed from Alzheimer's

I donate 25% to send medical supplies to Ukraine
Karlene Ellsworth brings botanical insight and fascination with how
light brings excitement to the worlds she creates in her still life
paintings. The magic of art enables her to break free from the bonds of
her Multiple Sclerosis and express her spirituality through the medium
of oil paint.
The passion expressed in her work invites us to follow her explorations
of form, color, and movement across the canvas. Her paintings combine
painterly joy and an impressionistic spontaneity with the formal
disciplines of managing space and illusion through chiaroscuro and
attention to representational form.
Karlene spent the last eight years caring for her husband who had
developed Alzheimer's. Since his passing in 2020 she returned to art
She received a USArtists Special Needs scholarship to Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts in 1998-99. When living in Bucks County, she
was represented by the Lambertville Gallery of Fine Art.
Private study following the methods of David A. Leffel. Her mentors have
included Gregg Kruetz, Joe Anna Arnette and Frank Arcuri of the Art
Students League. Currently she studies with Kelli Folsom of Colorado.
Her works have appeared in many juried shows. These have included the
Philadelphia Sketch Club 1997. 1998, & 1999, Small Oil Painting and
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts 1999 Student Shows.

    I’m disabled with MS. I love how light & color merge on the canvas of my still life paintings to create worlds where I'm free. My spirituality shows through the medium of oil paint. Find one you like to take home or gift to another art lover.
