Karen Lynn Ingalls
Karen Lynn Ingalls is a working artist and California credentialed teacher whose artwork, including paintings, drawings, collages, and life-sized painted sculptures, have been exhibited, and can be found in collections, on both west and east coasts of the United States. Karen lives and paints in the mountains near Calistoga, California. She began as a figure drawer and painter, but began painting endangered landscapes – places threatened by development – as she worked with others to save a threatened wetlands area in Monterey County. Enchanted by the land, its colors, and its spirit, she continues painting colorist landscapes of rural California. She also teaches art classes and workshops at the Calistoga Art Center.
