|Karen Asherah is a fine artist specializing in animal and nature photography. Most of her images are from Felton and locations around the Central Coast of California. Karen is passionate about representing the unique character and personality of her subjects. Many of her images include horses at liberty. Through her guardianship of a Paint named Romeo, Karen is connected to the equine community and knows many of her equine subjects personally. Herd dynamics and inter-species communication are especially interesting to Karen. Her images illustrate horses relating to each other, their environment, as well as to humans.
Karen attended art school at the California College of Arts and Crafts, now California College of the Arts in the San Francisco Bay Area. From the early 1970ís through the mid-80ís, Karen worked in the visual merchandising and graphic arts fields before beginning a career in social work. She has always found self-expression through the visual arts but photography, in particular, has become central in Karenís life. While she is primarily self-taught, Karen takes workshops whenever she can.
Karen sells her work through galleries, art & wine festivals, shops and coffee houses. She has also participated in juried shows including: Santa Cruz Art League, Western States Horse Expo, Triton Museum in Santa Clara, and Open Studios in Santa Cruz.
Karen contributes a portion of her income to animal welfare organizations.
