Karen Suderman is an award-winning artist whose artwork belongs to private collections in Texas, New York, D.C., and Alaska.
Her work is inspired by the relationship between colors, the space around lines, the rhythm within proportion, and the unveiling of beauty in nature.
In her abstract pieces, each image depicts a section of something natural such as a plant, animal, or person. The subject’s natural boundaries become part of the process for each piece. In her fresco pieces, the medium pushes the direction of the painting — like the grain of the wood directing composition.
In all mediums the balance between the natural world and what is uncovered through artistic process is symbiotic, creating unique pieces that combine something new with something that also feels familiar. The final effect: uncovering what the viewer already subconsciously knows to be there but in a fresh way.
Karen is a graduate of Southwestern University and founder of Artspoken Inc.
After a fire at the Guadeloupe Art Center in 2005, she opened Artspoken Gallery and Studios to provide studio space for many of the displaced artists and herself. Claimed by resident artists and reinvented, this studio is now called Austin Art Space.
She lives in Virginia with her husband and three children.

I saw your website via a reply by Tal Thompson and I enjoy your work. We know Tal and I agree with her, these are great. I paint abstracts and landscapes, as well, and am looking to add to my collection to help decorate our new home in Richmond. Are the following pieces for sale: Thrust, one of the Red Ones (I didn’t see titles), or there is a blue/green one under the Landscape section that I like. Please let me know if any of these are available for purchase, I’d love to buy one.
Thank you, Lance. Yes, Tal is great. I’d love to see you work too, so send me a link! To answer your question, Thrust has already sold, but I do have a few landscapes (including ones with green) available. Most are fresco on marble dust panel. I’ve been remiss on updating my website, but I’d be happy to email you pics of available work. Also, I’m currently posting available miniature paintings on my Facebook business page, http://rva artist
