Karen Talbot, Artist Extraordinaire!

by | Oct 4, 2023 | Reefs in Art | 0 comments

Karen Talbot is an award-winning scientific illustrator and conservation artist known primarily for her work with fish, birds, and botanicals. Living on the rocky coast of mid-coast Maine, Karen takes her inspiration from oceans, streams, canyons, and mountains where she regularly swims, fishes, and climbs.

An ardent conservationist, she aims to educate through her art, and she donates a percentage of sales to help conserve wildlands (and waters) that inspire her. Karen works in a variety of media, including watercolor, pen & ink, and acrylic. Collected by anglers, divers, birders, scientists, and anyone passionate about the beauty of the natural world, Karen’s artwork can be found worldwide at art shows, galleries, retail stores, restaurants, trade shows, and fishing tournaments, as well as in books, magazines, hotels, and, of course, in clients’ homes.

In addition to all that, Karen teaches classes and workshops on scientific illustration and painting, and runs a beautiful vegetable farm with her husband, Ret. To learn more and to talk with Karen, visit her website, HERE!
