Thank you for stopping by

My name is Karen Appleton, I am a self taught oil painter, and this website is a collection of my paintings. 

Once upon a time I was born and raised in a small town in Alabama where I had the good fortune of being adopted as an infant by parents that gave me the freedom to test my creative energies in many different directions. It was not until my late twenties that I finally began to focus seriously on painting.

"Sunday Blues" 

 

In the beginning, I painted almost exclusively wrapped presents as subject matter.  This was a way to give voice to the secret and mystery of my background. 

Questions about identity continue to be a main thread that runs through my paintings, but now, more focused on the common bonds that tie all of us together.
