Karen Wharton
Oil on canvas


My painting style is realism, my medium is oil on canvas, & my subjects are animals! I love the details in the face and eyes of an animal. My goal for the observer is to see into the soul of the animal through its eyes. I enjoy painting wildcats: lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars, snow leopards, cougars; but also paint birds, horses, dogs, cats, etc.

I began painting as a teen in Jr High art class in the Midwest, continuing to take painting classes until off to college to study Electrical Engineering. I continued painting as a hobby throughout my engineering career & while raising kids in California. I have studied with several artists specializing in realistic oil paintings & am now enjoying painting fulltime!
