K.A.Kimmell Designs
Karen Allen Kimmell

Karen began a serious interest in painting in 2008, after moving to Ann Arbor from Indiana. She has continued her artistic development in Northern Michigan since 2009, focusing primarily on oils and pastels. She has studied with a number of accomplished artists, including Dawn Caine, Ceasar Citraro, William Hosner, Elizabeth Pollie, Bob Rohm and Sally Strand.

Karen feels blessed to live full time in Northern Michigan, surrounded and inspired by its unmatched natural beauty. It is a perfect setting in which to engage in plein aire painting, one of her favorite activities.

She is an associate member of Oil Painters of America. Her work can be seen in North Goods, Petoskey, MI, in Fresh Water Gallery, Boyne City, MI and in Boyne Arts Collective, Boyne City, MI.
