was born in L.A. County, California. She is a self-taught
artist whose first inspiration stemmed from her interest
in horses. This fascination quickly led her to translate
the splendor of these animals and other wildlife through
drawing. Karen has broadened her repertoire to include
landscapes, still-life imagery and figures, while never
abandoning the wildlife that first sparked her imagination.
Throughout her imagery, one can find a certain sense of
harmony. This tranquility is partly a result of her gentle
brushstrokes and her talent to illustrate the play of
light in both nature and man-made objects. Dupré’s
work is adept at capturing a fleeting moment in time and
seemingly transporting the viewer there. The artist’s
unique style demonstrates her ability to transcend traditional
parameters and to constantly challenge herself in finding
new avenues of expression.
