Karen Hitt, Artist -
Karen received her art training at Parson’s School of Design in New York, majoring in Illustration. Her classic background and training are ever evident in her style, along with her love of capturing the figure and the effects of light in all of her scenes. These paintings capture influential daily moments and the lasting effects these memories play on our hearts and minds throughout our lives. Her area landscapes/skyscapes reflect the essence of the landmark, with accentuation on the effects of light to the scene.
Karen’s award winning paintings have been collected by private and
corporate collections: such as Venice City Hall and even the U.S. I.R.S. . Her works have also been published and distributed nationally in a line of gifts. She is the founder of the Venice Plein Air group and signature member of Plein Air Florida, plus a Paint America Parks Top 100 and Paint America Mini 50 Participant.
