Artist Karen D'Allaird
Following in the Brandywine tradition, Karen D’Allaird is an artist that continues to find inspiration from the rural beauty of her native Chester County, Pennsylvania. As a contemporary realist, D’Allaird’s work threads the needle between classical realism and a lively expression of a painterly vision. Her signature style of work utilizes light and color to capture the movement, beauty, and mood of a subject.
D’Allaird has been greatly influenced by the works of contemporary artists like Michael Klein, Jacob Collins and Richard Schmidt as well as the floral master of the 19th century, Henri Fantin-Latour. Karen D’Allaird’s work has been a natural progression realizing the value of creativity and individuality in art as well as the important discipline of learning technique. Her work has been sold to private collectors, businesses and hospitals throughout the country.
Karen D'Allaird now resides in Unionville, Pennsylvania with her husband and two children. She is also committed to educating the next generation of artists through her school, Willowdale Art Academy.
