In the Theatre Lobby Gallery: Karen Johnson

“French Press”, Karen Johnson, Oil on Canvas

Karen S Johnson relocated to sunny Cape Coral, FL in 2019 to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a full-time artist. Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL, Karen has always been an artist at heart since childhood. She spent 30 years as a professional hair stylist in Naperville, IL while always taking work shops from some very talented artist in Illinois and Florida. Soon after moving to Florida Karen became a member of both Cape Coral and Fort Myers Art League. She has won many awards for her realism still life paintings done with oil, some of her favorite subjects are glass and reflective objects with fruits and shells. Aside from still life Karen has done many commission paintings of dogs, cats, horses, flowers, landscapes and homes. She is also know for her Rubber Ducky paintings and you can find two of those painting on an electrical box on the corner of Cape Coral Parkway and Leonard St in downtown Cape Coral.

In the Member Gallery: David Hampton

David Hampton describes his work as an artistic effort to paint his life experiences. Channeling Edvard Munch, he views his pieces as his soul’s diary, works of self-confession that he hopes will help others realize that we are all human and therefore never truly strangers.
