Artist and photographer Karen Sperling views every photo and painting as a cherished keepsake time capsule of the subject's life at the moment it's captured in the photo or painting.
Each one of her paintings is a unique work of art of timeless elegance and quality imbued with the lessons learned from master painters spanning the centuries, from Rembrandt and Vermeer to the Impressionists, John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt.
Meanwhile, Karen Sperling is a world-renowned Corel Painter expert, having written the first several manuals for the software and several bestselling books and having taught photographers how to turn their photos into painted portraits for over 20 years since the software's debut. Photographers around the world study with Karen to learn her techniques and ideas.
Karen Sperling paints commissioned portraits for clients and for photographers from their photos for their clients.
Karen's painted portraits receive rave reviews like this:
I attended an Artistry Retreat taught by Karen Sperling and she is an amazing teacher. Her class was organized, relaxed and thorough. I went from a total novice to being able to create wonderful paintings from my photographs.
However, when my granddaughters were to be flower girls at my son's wedding, I knew I had to go to the Master to get stunning results. Karen Sperling has surpassed all expectations! She sorted through all of the wedding photos and chose two. We discussed (via email) which to use and the basic look I was hoping for. The result is a treasured portrait that will make me smile for the rest of my life.
I have a picture of the portrait on my cell phone and share it with everybody I see! I highly recommend Karen's work--you will not be disappointed. In addition to being a very talented painter, she is also a very nice lady.Carolyn Johnson
