Karen Yee was born into an artistic environment. Her mother painted with oils when Karen was a small child, and through her mother's passion, was surrounded by fine art. Karen has explored several types of artistic expression, but she didn't discover the joy of painting with oils herself until much later in life, now one of her favorite mediums, along with acrylics. Her art has won many awards at juried exhibitions, and she is garnering recognition and acclaim. The main themes of her art focus on the joy of her family and her love of music, yet her style is ever developing.
Ms. Yee lives in El Segundo with her husband and two daughters. She is a member of the El Segundo Art Association , the California Art Club, the Portait Society of America, and a board member for the Torrance Artists' Guild.
