Karen Folgner is a born and raised Californian. Throughout the years, she has lived up and down the entire coast and finally landed in the San Francisco Bay Area, despite her love/hate relationship with the Bay Area fog.  When not painting at her studio during the day or formulating the next composition in the middle of the night, her time is spent with her husband, three young children, faithful dog and potentially evil cat. 

Karen's earlier professional years were spent as a graphic designer in some of the largest names in the tech industry. A re-discovery of self truth drew her back to her studies in fine art. Her paintings hang in private collections throughout the west coast and her latest pieces have been gaining momentum in the world of interior design through exhibitions, notable auctions and word of mouth.

Artistic studies: Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UCSB and ULCA in variety of disciplines including theory, figure drawing, oil painting, acrylics, and watercolors.
