My name is Karin Winter. I was born and raised in The Netherlands, Europe. Nine years ago I moved with my husband to the United States. We now have FOUR (count them) beautiful sons ages 7, 5, 3 and 1.
I studied Art and Art History in college and earned two Bachelors degrees in Art Education. I have always had a deep love of art, hoping to pursue a career in it one day. When we started our family I became a stay at home mom/artist.
A question frequently asked of an artist is, “What is your favorite medium?” Although I really do not have one particular favorite, I excel in all mediums, truly enjoying the creative challenge as well as the diversity. I do love to sew, and have designed and completed quilts, ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards), Christmas Stockings, and much more. Oil and acrylic paintings are frequently requested and are also high on my list; creating such works of art as portraits of children and pets with an influx of modern abstract pieces now and then. My hand crafted cards are the newest creation in my portfolio and have become a favorite of my clients.
The summer months and warmer weather allow my creative juices to flow in a new, exciting direction….giving new life to worn out antique dressers and cabinets. My quest begins with the hunt for unique pieces of old furniture with “good bones”; a little repair work; a groovy fresh paint job and Viola, beautiful new life to an old standby!
Please tour my gallery. I would love to create something uniquely special just for you.
Feel free to email me with your questions or to place an order.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
