Karen Campbell is a Maine native who enjoyed a creatively encouraged upbringing that led her to designing her own line of jewelry. KC’s Jewelry was established in 1987. In September of 2001, Karen, feeling burnout of repetitive jewelry production, turned to watercolor. She has studied with Stan Kierstead, Marni Lawson, Carol Sebold, and Michael Vermette. Karen’s whimsical eye and creative spirit has her currently consumed by watercolor. She paints a wide variety of subjects from landscapes to Flamingos and Snowmen to Martinis. She also teaches project based art classes at Carrabassett Valley Academy and at her own KC’s Kreativity Center in Carrabassett Valley.
