Karen Leslie Hall

Trenton, ON
Karen Leslie Hall is an informally-trained, award-winning painter whose forays into the visual arts continue a life of creative expression that began with music. She has explored soft pastel (Master Pastel Artist of Canada), watercolours, and acrylics in an effort to find beauty in everyday things.

Two favourite motifs, the elegance of a single pear (reminiscent of the female form) and the dramatic effect of light through Venetian blinds, come together in her popular “Venetian Pear” series of acrylic paintings. A grisaille underpainting (image fully rendered in greys) and many transparent colour glazes result in a smooth, glossy, photo-like finish. The larger the canvas, the more complex the image.

Larger purchased works will be delivered in person if at all possible (within GTA or along 401 corridor); smaller pieces will be shipped. If you have questions, feel free to contact Karen by email at [email protected], or by text at 416-414-0358.
