Karen Lynn Ingalls
Karen Lynn Ingalls is a working artist and art teacher who lives in Calistoga, and is known mostly for her brilliantly colored landscapes of rural California. Her artwork, including paintings, drawings, collages, and life-sized painted sculptures, have been exhibited and can be found in collections on both west and east coasts of the United States, and a few places in between.
Originally a figure drawer and painter, she began painting endangered landscapes — places threatened by development — as she worked with others to save a threatened wetlands area. Always a lover of the California landscape, Karen feels blessed to live in such an inspirational place.
