Karen McCallum

Emerging Artist

Karen McCallum is an artist based in Edmonton, Alberta. The Rocky Mountains, rolling hills, canola fields, endless skies, forests, ravines and river valleys evoke in her a deep appreciation for the Alberta landscape. She works primarily in acrylics that allow her to layer paint transparently and opaquely over a jewel-toned underpainting that often peeks through. She injects her paintings with intensified colours and quiets the chaos of shapes to extract the essence of a place, capturing a fleeting moment. Inspired by places she’s experienced by foot, bike and car, she considers the Canadian landscape sacred and enjoys experiencing it with friends, family and dogs. Her paintings invite you to be still and notice the beauty in ordinary things we might otherwise overlook. Mostly self-taught, she has gleaned much from attending art workshops and from her good friends Trial and Error. Karen is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
