Welcome to Karen Millar Kendall Art!  I invite you to take a stroll through my collections, read my blog, and peruse the  items in the shop. 


I thought I loved black and white, and then I found color.  Color is the ultimate expression of creative love and of feeling and emotion.  Yes, even greys and neutrals tell a story in the way they can express a point of view, or a critical point in one’s life.   


I love layering and scraping, finding the hidden treasure that lies just below the surface - from under the obvious comes the truth. I don’t claim to understand what is happening when I paint, it is intuitive, surprising, and always evolving.  Pattern, texture, and color are the tools of my creative experience.  I interpret what I see and feel on the canvas with a non literal expression of that moment in time.  I find joy in the process.  

My intention is to allow the viewer to bring themselves into the work and find what it is they need, or desire, in the elements therein.  

From representational to abstract, there is always the underlying connectedness to something natural; the true essence of nature appears. The subject is the least important part of the composition, more important is how that subject is expressed through color and process.  It may be unrecognizable as an object or scene, but is intricately represented in essence. Through this process, pieces may seem outwardly, uniquely different in style, but are inwardly speaking the same language. 

Take a stroll through my website, and enjoy nature's beauty as you connect to it in your own personal way.

CREATEPC IS BACK!

(at the old Zoom Building!  660 Main)

Because it is always an evolving project, dependent on the generosity of property owners in Park CIty to lend us vacant space, CreatePC Pop Up Gallery is ever re-creating its space.  Vascasa Real Estate has been so generous to give us their space for the past year, and we still still have some work up there.  The new news is that we are now able to move back to the old Zoom building (Park City locals know what that means!) for a limited time.  We artists love that beautiful old historic building - it's bright, and airy, and a great space to show our art.  Minimally we will be there until end of April, 2022 and hopefully through the summer.   Be sure to check it out!  660 Mail in Park City, on the corner of Main St. and Heber Ave.
