Karen Haynes

My delight is in the traditional presentation of the unexpected, finding the tipping point that turns plain-vanilla into surprise. I obscure and reveal,
paint over and rub off. Color and line, smudges, drips and marks move in and out of layers of paint. The work responds to elements in still life and
landscape through images which reflect and explore contradictions. I strive to use composition, color and texture to create compelling surfaces.

Karen Haynes, was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Colorado. She received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the University of Colorado. Through workshops with Joe Mugnani, Robert Wood, Don Stinson and Amy Metier, and additional classes with The Art Students League in Denver she
continued to develop her work.


Her paintings are in corporate and private collections.
