Karen Cooper

In 2002, Karen moved east to New Mexico; ten years later, in 2012, she moved east again to Texas.  Every time Karen moves east, she finds more “west” to paint. After six months in Texas, she has already been signed to do two solo museum exhibits and five combined museum western art shows and sales

In addition, she has shown or will be showing in four other private invitational Western Art Shows in Texas, Arizona and Colorado.  In 2011 Karen’s work became part of the permanent collection of the Pearce Museum.  She has been the official rodeo poster artist and the Western Art Show limited edition print artist for Cheyenne Frontier Days.  Karen made her second trip to Cowgirl Up! in Wickenburg, Arizona, where she was awarded the top prize for two dimensional work on paper.

Karen is well known for action and movement in her paintings, as well as the drama of the negative space that is her signature.  With her eye for color, a true one-of-a-kind creation of real people and animals is frozen for a split second from an actual event.
