About Karen Fleschler

KAREN FLESCHLER Watercolors by KB


Painting takes me to another level of self-awareness. When I am painting, I feel as if I am in the moment and place of what I am painting. Everything else becomes secondary; all of my senses are acutely stimulated. From the first time I put a paint brush to paper in kindergarten, I fell in love with the act of creating something.

I'm a watercolor artist because I love how the paint can be manipulated on paper. I enjoy the process from start to finish - from deciding what to paint, why I want to paint it, how I'm going to compose it and what colors and perspective do I want to apply and emphasize. My style of paint application is bright, loose under-painting with tight, textural brush strokes for the final layer. I'm very much into color and fancy myself a colorist. The most important part of the process for me is what I call my 'stare time'. It may be a day or a week, but I always find things to fine tune and improve my painting.

My themes usually come from things I have experienced and places that I have traveled to. I relive my memories through my art. Lately, I have been experimenting with watercolor canvas and have done several paintings in a semi-abstract style. My paintings normally are impressionistic realism.

I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived here all my life. I graduated from San Jose State University with a B.A. in Social Science/Psychology and completed graduate work to achieve a teaching credential. After raising my family, I decided to enroll in art classes. I had always longed to paint and, more specifically, paint with watercolor. I've been a professional artist since 2003 and have thoroughly enjoyed the journey. I hope my work brings you pleasure.

As an aside, I sign my paintings 'KB' which is a family nickname. I do it as a way to honor relatives who have passed and to keep precious memories alive.
