Karen I Coates

It is always a pleasure to talk to Karen. Her personality alone makes you want to stay and talk more. Listening to her makes you feel like you’re talking to your best friend that you haven’t seen in a long time. You are happy to see her again, even if its the first time.


I learned so much about her work. I was impressed that, when she was 14, one of her works won a contest and was published in a magazine. As she grew, she submitted more drawings and expanded her artistic skills. From simple sketches to intricately textured pieces. She even designed her prom dress, and she looked beautiful in it.


Her talent is explosive. It evokes emotions and feelings that may have lied dormant for many years. Some of her pieces gave me nostalgia, others made me smile, and some made me cry. Overall, you owe it to yourself to experience the variety of art she creates to find the piece that speaks to your inner soul.


Although she works with different mediums, her unique style is apparent in every piece. Art in her eyes is beauty, and that’s what she conveys through her works. An intelligent woman who grew up to be an accomplished artist. That’s her story.
