Karen McCallum is an artist based in Edmonton, Alberta. The Rocky Mountains, canola fields, endless skies, forests, and river valleys evoke a deep appreciation in her for the Alberta landscape. 

 

She works primarily in acrylics that allow her to layer paint transparently and opaquely over a jewel-toned underpainting that often peeks through. She injects her paintings with intensified colours and quiets the chaos of shapes to extract the essence of a place. 

 

Inspired by places she’s experienced by foot, bike, and car, she considers these spaces sacred and enjoys experiencing them with friends, family and dogs. Her paintings invite you to be still and notice the beauty in ordinary things we might otherwise ignore.

She is an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and sits on the board of her local chapter. She's a CARFAC and Gallery 501 member.
