She recently achieved Signature status with the American Artists Professional League and she has earned Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America and Master Circle with the International Association of Pastel Societies. Karen’s work is frequently displayed at the Salmagundi Club, NYC, The Copley Society, Boston and the Lyme Art Association, Ct.
