“Lemons and Silver”
Karen Frattali, a longtime resident of Chester County Pennsylvania, has been a part of the painting community for over twenty years. Primarily a watercolorist, she dabbles in other media. She is a representational painter who enjoys attention to detail and a highly saturated color palette of transparent colors. Her training began with courses at Philadelphia College of Art, while she was on sabbatical from teaching and continued with international workshops taught by painters of AWS and NWS credentials. An assortment of subject matter keeps daily painting from every becoming formulaic. She enjoys painting architectural landscapes, animals, figures, flowers and she loves rendering fabric and shiny still life compositions. Karen maintains numerous affiliations in a vast art community. Among them: Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Nat’l Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Philadelphia Watercolor Society. She is currently serving on the board for PWS. She has been juried into numerous national and international exhibitions. She routinely teaches workshops in watercolor and other media. She has received recognition and awards in the competitive arena and her work hangs in private and corporate collections.
In a world where electronics and videography seem to have captured the attention of the masses, my goal is to elevate fine arts to a level that encourages the average person to appreciate art forms that captivate with beauty and creativity.
Our mission is to encourage, promote, and enhance water media painting on paper through the education of the artist and the public.
