Karen Aschenbrenner, a Del Mar Area artist, has pursued many mediums but remains true to the flow and translucence of watercolor, layered with acrylic elements. She is consistently attracted to the purity of colors in nature and the interplay of light and shadow which are utilized to express gestural emotions in her artwork. California’s coastal and outback areas provide plenty of dynamic inspiration for her many watercolors and bold mixed media paintings.  

Karen’ s career in art began as a background artist working in the animation industry in Los Angeles, CA. She is listed on the IMDb for television screen credits on the animated children’s Saturday series Star Trek, Brady Kids, Lassie’s Rescue Rangers and My Favorite Martian produced by Filmation and Associates. She has also had an extensive career in visual merchandising and retail display as a Display Director in Los Angeles Area Department Stores.

Karen currently exhibits paintings in many juried and award winning shows at the Cinepolis Theater Exhibits, San Diego Watercolor Society,Front Porch Gallery, the Solana Beach City Hall Gallery, Del Mar Art Center Gallery, SAG Art Group, the COAL Gallery, HBT Gallery, Coastal Artist’s Group Shows and Retail Art Windows at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, Carmel Valley.
