About Karen Ward

unnamedKaren Ward, Iconographer, Artist, Art Teacher

Karen attended Cooper Union School of Art in New York City, then married and raised three children. Art was a daily activity in their home. She completed her Certificate in Painting and Drawing from the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC and focused on landscape painting after moving to a farm in Culpepper County, Virginia. Her paintings have been exhibited in juried local and national shows in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, and she has been represented by three galleries in Virginia. Karen has taught drawing and painting classes for the past twelve years and is proud that some of her students have gone on to exhibit and sell their work in juried shows and in galleries!

Now accepting commission for icons, she spends her time painting icons and teaching art classes.
