Karen Stanton Gallerywww.ArtPal.com/kjstanton
My name is Karen Stanton and i am a published children's book author/ illustrator and artist. My art has been shown and sold in galleries in the US and in Spain. I am also an architect. Since i adopted a Jack Russell Terrier last year while living in Spain, I can't stop drawing, painting and making art in the images of the dogs I meet everyday. Some of the work has the dogs' names as part of the art. The dog work is collage onto old sheets of Spanish newspaper and books i have gathered from around the world.
My alphabets are inspired by my life; the first was My Alphabet of Menopause, followed by the rest. I wanted to learn Photoshop while i was living in Spain, so i decided to do an alphabet project to learn. It was so much fun (after the learning curve) that i cant stop making new alphabets. Next in line is An Alphabet of Dogs I Met,
By the way, the lady with the red necklace isn't me. Im blond and blued eyed and older than her. She was a Venetian woman whose portrait I saw in a gallery there. I coveted her beads and her velvety skin.
