Karen Deilke was born in Texas and lived in the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado before moving to the tropical paradise and artist haven of Coconut Grove, Florida, in 1996. A lifelong artist, Karen paints in acrylic, oil and watercolor and creates mixed media collages. Her work has won many juried show awards and is included in private and corporate collections in the US and the Caribbean. She is represented by The WIT Gallery in Lenox, MA,  and her work may also be
seen at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art Gallery and Heart of the Grove Gallery, both in Coconut Grove.

Artist Statement:

“To be able to do what I love is both a gift and a blessing. To share this blessing with those who see my work gives the gift an even greater dimension. As far back as I can remember I have loved to paint and draw, but the vagaries of life demanded a long and unhappy hiatus. Now, when I am able to fill my days with color and light, I hope that I can translate my inner vision with honesty and passion. If those who view my work can see that vision and in some way be moved by what they see, then the circle of the blessing and the gift is completed.”
