About

Artwork

Karen Barton describes her paintings as being "of a historical nature." She seeks out subject matter that represents contemporary culture and also acts as a timeless icon. The results are aesthetically pleasing little pieces that offer a freeze frame of our fast changing culture and attach to personal memories. "My paintings are a personal statement of the collector... perhaps a story to be told," says Karen.

Karen Barton

Puyallup, Washington

Oil painter Karen Barton creates records of everyday objects through a historical and sentimental lens. With works that feature the ingredients of a PB&J sandwich or the iconic blue Morton's Salt container, Karen makes a connection through the goods that reach into our homes and possibly to our childhoods. As she explains, "my paintings are of a historical nature. They mostly represent contemporary culture and our current time in history while others are ‘timeless icons.'" Karen collects her subjects at local grocery, hardware, or antique stores where she often attracts curious stares while she intently examines the items. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Karen shares a studio with her artist husband, which she describes as a busy looking place with art supplies and a bright yellow futon with Libby, their beloved studio dog.
