KAREN HENNECK has always loved the Western landscape. She lives in Casper, Wyoming where the air is fresh and clean and the sun shines almost every day. Casper is backed by a mountain and the North Platte River runs through it. Minutes away are cattle ranches, streams, bluffs and prairies. Karen uses pastels with their brilliance and depth of color to capture these beautiful scenes. Her husband and kids are avid fisherman and Karen follows them along the river, but instead of a fishing pole she carries an easel and a box of pastels!
After 21 years working as a Floral Designer, Karen decided to follow her lifelong dream of pursuing an art career. Karen went to a community college in Casper and realized art was her life and her soul. She received a Degree in Fine Art and found she loves illustration, also. She has now written 14 children' books she is illustrating, and currently has 3 published. "This Skin I'm In" "Ben and Pirate Moon" and "Something's Fishy" can be purchased through Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Also, Karen has painted numerous life-size fiberglass animals for fundraising events in Wyoming and South Dakota.
To Karen, art is not a hobby or pastime, art is her life, an emotional gift from God which has transformed her forever. Enjoy God'sHandiwork with Karen; the spirited vistas, dramatic unending skies...the Nostalgic Western Landscape!
