Karen Kent is an artist based in Fairfield, Connecticut. Kent graduated with honors from Lehigh University with a B.A. in Fine Arts and Architecture.

She fell in love with color from her first box of crayons as a child, and it’s remained a constant focal point throughout her life and career. The media she now uses is oil, pastel, acrylic and mixed media.

Kent frequently uses color to speak to movement, emotion, and light in her work. And while she feels she is able to express her heart and soul through painting, she also delivers moments of playfulness that surprise and delight the viewer.

Before becoming a full-time artist, Kent spent 27 years working in the Interior Design space, where she was crafting homes with balance through fabric, color, furniture, and accessories. She has since shifted her creativity towards a more spontaneous medium — creating striking vibrant large scale paintings.

Karen is a member of Rowayton Arts Center, Carriage Barn Arts Center, Westport Arts Center, Greenwich Art Society and the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County.
