“Painting has become my personal reality. The medium may change from watercolor, pen and ink, collage, oil or soft pastels, however, each painting has merit and stands on its own. Adding more colors inspires me. I am discovering and get lost in the process. When I stand back and view the results, I have my aha moments. When the audience views my work they relate to their own personal experiences and that is rewarding. The feedback I receive has only encouraged me to continue.”
Karen Alpert Entous has been painting watercolors and creating greeting cards from her paintings since her visit to China in 1989.

“It is my role as an artist to lead the viewer into the painting and evoke the visual senses and memories. What I see is real, but what I paint or do with the information evolves into another image, a kind of personal reality. The work takes on a life of it’s own of playfulness and serenity. I am responding to color and the watercolor media lends itself to exploration. I have a sense of location, a point of view. Then I incorporate the use of geometric construction.”
Graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, artist Karen Alpert Entous has been involved in arts and crafts since childhood. She is a long time resident of Southern California and currently has her own card company under the name kae.
