Karen Peter retired with her late husband to Sudden Valley from Denver, Colorado in 2006. While living in Colorado, Karen was active in the Lakewood (CO) Arts Guild and the guild’s South Union Gallery.
A self-taught oil painter for many years, Karen has always particularly enjoyed painting still life subjects, people and animals. After moving to the Pacific Northwest, she became enamored of the new and very different challenges presented by watercolors and has subsequently worked almost exclusively in this medium.
Since coming to the Bellingham area, Karen has participated in the Whatcom Art Guild and the Valley Arts Group, serving on the VAG Board of Directors for many years. She enjoys taking part in several casual painting groups and attending an ongoing, informal weekly watercolor class.
