About Karen Kaul

My work is driven by a study in contrasts: light and dark, refined and rustic, serene and chaotic. Contrast creates dynamic tension—the ultimate playground for any artist. Orchestrating the balance between opposites is where life and art become interesting to me. I currently reside near Minneapolis on two unruly acres with my husband, two boys, and a cat.

Thanks, Karen, for your recent like on my copy (SuperDad). Appreciate it. A big congrats to you on your WE win. I was just telling my kids about my trips up to Split Rock Lighthouse with my wife (we used to live in Minneapolis) and Seawall really evokes some of the many things I remember about Lake Superior. Really miss it up there! Keep up the great work :)

Hi Karen, the comments you left on "Misty Shoreline" and on my designer page inspired me to find out more about you. More on that in a minute. If you're like me, the praise you have receive for your art has pretty much been a life-long phenomenon and as much as I don't take that for granted and try to gracefully acknowledge when I receive it, it is not nearly as meaningful to me as when someone shares that they have been "called to action" so to speak, as a result of viewing my work. So I am truly honored and am both supportive of and invested in your efforts when you tell me my work has inspired you to "sharpen your paint brushes" and "up your game." Please update your website when you create new work because I'll be looking for it. Also, bumblebees will help you to have greater success with tomato plants! For now, --Robert

Hi Karen! Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment on my piece, The Prawl; and for the additional likes of a few other pieces. These compliments coming from such a talented artist are truly appreciated. I admire the breadth of your work and have very much enjoyed viewing your submissions. Ms. Fox was being very kind to me that misty afternoon in Jackson. It was accidental that we ended up on that road. We saw her as we rounded a corner and I quickly tried to get my camera setup. Wrong Lens. Wrong settings. Blurry quick snaps. And then she was off into the brush. I was so bummed out for "missing the shot" but after we reached the top, and turn back around to come down, there she was again. I was ready that time. :) My husband and I had just gotten married a couple days prior. I like to think her appearance was a special gift for us. Best of luck to you with the challenge and I look forward to seeing more of your work! Cheers, K

Hi Karen, thanks so much for your positive feedback on my "Spaces" submissions. I am scrambling to finish the ones I started awhile ago. I had a major computer issue and have been working with Apple Tech daily for awhile. Haven't had a chance to see what everyone else has submitted but my computer issues are almost under control Whew! Thanks again, greatly appreciated! You have some gorgeous entries. :)

Hi Karen! Thank you so much for your feedback on my "Picket Fences" photograph. I had wondered about doing exactly what you suggested, I'm glad you left me that comment! ps: I adore your "Solitary Watch" artprint, that has found its place in my living room.
