I just finished drawing out my next painting! Here’s a detail of one of the patterns. Stay tuned!
As a person without a car, I rarely have the opportunity to take advantage of the thrift stores around me.
On the way home from my residency at the Georgia College Museum, I held onto my rental car for an extra day to explore every (literally EVERY) thrift store on the way. After 10 hours and 20+ stores, I picked up these amazing blankets, sheets, and tapestries!

“Karen Ann Myers’ paintings explore the challenges of contemporary femininity by presenting slender and youthful beauties lounging about in well-decorated bedrooms.” said exhibition curator Shannon Morris. “Their idealism is enforced by her beautiful and precise rendering style that allows the viewer to peer into the dream-like worlds of these subjects, whose bodies are perfectly posed within physical spaces that are designed by the artist’s imagination. Reinforcing the idea of perfection and its demands upon young females, the subjects’ bedrooms are appropriately embellished with carefully curated patterns, complimentary colors and minimal furnishings.”
