About the Artist:
"A native Virginian, Karen A. Galleher, painted in oils as a hobby for over twenty years with a "childhood-drawing-for-fun" and a "high-school-art-class" background. Her undergraduate education major was in business administration and minor in English. Galleher worked as an administrator for a trade association and a systems analysis company and as a staff assistant for the U.S. House of Representatives before becoming a homemaker and mother of three. While her children were young, she studied interior design and painted occasionally for family and friends.
In early 1990, Galleher realized she wanted to be a professional painter. She painted forty hours a week for three years before marketing any work. During this time, she attended workshops and took classes taught by nationally renown artists. She developed her own painted signature of stylized impressionism in portraiture, landscapes, and fantasy. She continues to build a resume of achievements, has had several one-woman shows, and her work is featured in a number of galleries. Her paintings and prints are in prestigious art collections in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Galleher teaches oil painting classes and offers workshops to other inspiring artists. She is on the Registrar of the National Museum of Women and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, both located in Washington, D.C.
Galleher's desire is to use brush and canvas to create work that communicated a timeless mood and uplighting response. She strives to connect the observer to individual memories that warm a heart, touch a soul, and cause a smile. She has her own definition of "gifted and talented." She strongly believes the first is the energy and desire, the talent blooms in proportion to the amount of time spent on creative development, and most people do not develop their innate ability to draw and explore color."
