Local Art: Karen Kent



The artwork of Karen Kent will be on exhibit and for sale at Greiser’s through the end of 2023.

Karen Kent is an artist based in Fairfield, Connecticut. Kent graduated with honors from Lehigh University with a B.A. in Fine Arts and Architecture.

She fell in love with color from her first box of crayons as a child, and it’s remained a constant focal point throughout her life and career. Kent frequently uses color to speak to movement, emotion, and light in her work. And while she feels she is able to express her heart and soul through painting, she also delivers moments of playfulness that surprise and delight the viewer.

Before becoming a full-time artist, Kent spent 27 years working in the Interior Design space, where she was crafting homes with balance through fabric, color, furniture, and accessories. She has since shifted her creativity towards a more spontaneous medium — creating striking vibrant large scale paintings.

Karen is an exhibiting member of Rowayton Arts Center and New Haven Paint and Clay. She is also a member of Carriage Barn Arts Center, Westport Arts Center, Westport Arts Collective, Greenwich Art Society, the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, and Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
