About the Artist:

Karen McLean-McGaw, nationally acclaimed artist and Santa Barbara native, has been capturing the essence of local landscapes for the past 25 years with her vibrant and sensitive watercolors. Karen is well known for her landscapes, sensitive watercolors, and waterfront settings in California, France and Italy where she travels annually.

Her small format paintings are executed “en plein air”, while larger compositions are painted in her studio. She is frequently invited to jury shows, demonstrate her painting techniques and teach workshops. In addition to major corporate and private collections, her work has been featured on magazine covers and won national awards.

She has been selected three times to paint the official LJFA annual poster.
