Karen Dupré’s widely varied styles all have two things in common—talent and creativity. A self-taught artist, Dupré is a Californian who began painting at age 9. Her initial works focused on horses, and later included figures, landscapes and still lifes. Dupré has a special gift for re-creating the interplay of light in both nature and man-made objects. Inspired by 19th-century painters who challenged artistic ideals, Dupré strives to do the same with her boundless styles.
