Karen Roberts

I will use my creativity and strong work ethic to ensure each customer is 100% satisfied. Whether it's an art project or customer service, I'm dedicated to providing excellent work.

I have many years of experience with both customer service and painting. See the attached resume (in file section).

I've always enjoyed the freedom of expression that comes with putting thoughts and ideas on canvas, paper and wood. I employ a wide variety of media in my work, including (but not limited to) found materials, wood, glass beads, wax, acrylics, gouache, oils and canvas.

Although primarily self taught, I've apprenticed with some of Houston’s finest artists and participate in a variety of exhibitions.

I have over 4000 logged hours of live acrylic painting in the art entertainment industry, teach private art lessons and have experience with mural work.

My most recent venture has been in 3D with textiles. I'm currently creating a series of reconstructed vintage clothing from the 1920’s, collaborating with a local non-profit organization, Magpies & Peacocks, designing 20’s style hats through their upcycling process of reusing upscale donation fabrics and baubles as the Magpies & Peacocks Artist in Nesting.

I currently facilitate therapeutic and expressive art classes for at risk and homeless children through ArtBridge Houston. I also accept commissions for residential, commercial and mural artwork.

Work Terms

My schedule is flexible, and quotes are given based on specific client requests. For art projects, please specify size, surface material (canvas, paper, digital only, etc) and medium (acrylic, watercolor, oils, etc). I can work from photographs, as long as they are owned by client or at least 20% of the image is being modified. If preferred, specific ideas can be given, with style & color suggestions. Clients with art projects will be required to pay 50% upfront and will receive a color rendition sketch for approval before project commences.
