Featured Artist - Kaaren Oreck

“I enjoy a three step process in creating my works. The first step involves taking images that interest and excite, whether they are from the garden down the street or an exotic culture halfway around the world. Next the images are manipulated or combined to produce what the artists’ eye really saw, past some of the details that shouldn’t have been there and including some that should have. . Lastly the image is created using transparent watercolors– for others to see what my eye has envisioned.”

Kaaren currently resides in Madison. Her work has been in many exhibitions and juried shows. Some more prominent juried ones are Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Watercolor Wisconsin in which she received an award in the last three years, WP&S –West Bend Art Museum, silver watercolor award-, Hardy Gallery, and exhibiting in Madison and Tokyo as part of the Japanese-American Art Exchange. Memberships include WP&S, AWOL, Wisconsin Watercolor Society, Madison Watercolor Society, Madison Art Guild, life and past board member Transparent Watercolor Society of America. She has been chosen to be the feature artist by WHA public television for 2005.
