About The Art

State of the Art Digital Painting

A painted portrait by Karen Walker is a unique style of portraiture with the realism of a photograph and the distinctive hand crafted richness of a painting. Combining old world classicism and modern technology, portraits are hand painted with a digital palette and stylus utilizing the artist's brushstrokes. The resulting portrait conveys beauty and emotion rarely found in an ordinary photograph. Karen will custom tailor your portrait for size, color and style to compliment your home decor.


Explore The Possibilities

Together, We Will Create A Masterpiece

You are invited to personally view a sampling of Karen's work and discuss the options for your portrait. Karen may also want to scout your location to determine the best time of day if it is to be an outdoor sitting. Take some time to plan clothing choices and think about where the portrait may hang. Karen will be happy to make decorating suggestions and create a portrait to best fit your size requirements and color scheme.



Can a painting be made from an existing photograph?

Paintings are typically made from the artist's own photographs and impressions. However, a beautiful tribute painting may be possible from existing photographs when the subject is not available for a sitting.

Photographs used for reference may be relatively current or from many years past. Karen Walker is an expert in restoration of old and damaged photographs.
