Karen Dupré works in a myriad of styles, all of which share the common threads of talent and creativity. Originally from California, Dupré is a self-taught artist who began painting at age 9. Initially inspired by her love of horses, she later painted haute-couture figures, abstracts, idyllic nature scenes, cityscapes and still lifes. She excels at portraying the play of light in both nature and man-made objects. Drawing inspiration from 19th-century painters Klimt, Monet, Remington and Renoir, who reshaped artistic ideals, Dupré aspires to do the same with her diverse styles.
