Juror – Karen Roehl

Originally from Montreal, Canada, Karen Roehl began her art career in Denver as a graphic artist. After twenty successful years an independent designer, she decided to fulfill her ultimate goal to become a fine artist. Fully committing to her ambition, she re-entered university to study painting at CU Denver, graduating with a BFA and top honors in 2007.

Now known for her paintings inspired by abstract expressionism, Roehl has work in many private and national collections. In more recent explorations, Roehl combines realism with her abstract mark-making, primarily using the horse as her subject and inspiration.

Roehl has representation in Colorado and Texas. She regularly participates in solo, group, juried and invitational exhibitions. She has the great honor of being a repeated exhibiting artist in the prestigious Coors Western Art Exhibit since 2015 and was named Editor’s Choice for Artist to Watch in the February 2016 issue of Southwest Art magazine. Roehl is a faculty member of the Art Students League of Denver where she has taught painting since 2011.
