Artwork of Karen Elder, West Coast Artist living on Hornby Island, BC. I am an expressionist artist that paints from the heart. My collection includes original landscapes, seascapes,
flowers, wildlife and sealife as well as some abstract and mixed media works. I paint both small and large paintings and also sell artcards of some of my paintings. My love of nature,
colour, atmosphere and light are very apparent in my paintings. I hope you enjoy scrolling through the galleries included below.
What my satisfied Customers have said....
"Tranquility": Yes I got the painting and it's perfect! Thanks so much Christina H., Fort St. John, BC
"The Path": It is so perfect, it is our forest, so special. Karen, I really really love it, I knew I would but it is even better than I imagined
it would be. I LOVE IT! He (Doug) loves it too! One of my colleagues compared it to an Emily Carr! Lisa H., Sooke, BC
"Winter Serenity" is an amazing oil painting that somehow manages to pull you in and transports you to the very spot. You disappear
into the vibrant colors of the ocean or the rich textures of the sky. It's magical and so very beautiful. I absolutely love
Thanks Karen Sandra P., Parksville, BC
"Flora Islet" : I have literally just opened the packaging and am absolutely thrilled. It arrived safe and sound (great packing job, by the way!) and I couldn't
be happier with it! It is stunning! The colours are even better than I imagined. It is perfect in our space (size and colour tones). You captured a spot on the island that we
have visited many times and it is quintessential, Hornby. Thank you for sharing your art. You can be certain we will treasure it. Krista M., Vernon, BC
"Big Sky Over Middle Bay": Your beautiful work has arrived here safe and sound. Thanks for taking such good care with the wrapping. I'm looking
forward to hanging it in my home and enjoying your imaginative and skilfully executed painting. That sky is wonderful, even better than I remembered! Janice M., Vancouver, BC
