About the Artist
The early years of Karen Jacobs’ art education and career were pursued as possible, second to the needs of her mobile military family. A move to Washington, D.C. permitted both the time and opportunity for studies at the Maryland College of Art and Design and with the outstanding local artists and teachers.
From high detail realism to total abstraction, the Karen has sought her own way and allowed the work to develop independently. The artists’ preferred medium is acrylic as it allows the impulsive changes necessary to her process, but she has worked extensively in nearly all painting mediums from watercolor to oils and encaustics plus several original print processes.
Karen Jacob’s extensive art career has included representation in numerous galleries from Santa Fe to D.C., New York to New Orleans, Memphis and Atlanta. Her work is featured in private and corporate collections world wide.
