Karen Marie Petrillose

Karen is a lifelong lover of the arts. Has a Bachelor of Arts in Piano Performance from the University of Iowa and an AAS in Hotel Technology, specializing as a pastry chef and cake decorator. Born and raised in Watertown, NY, she found her way to the Pacific Northwest in 2000 where she met and married a local fella. Her husband launched her hobby as a watercolorist by giving her as a gift a series of classes with William Hewson of West Seattle. From her very first class she came home with a work of art which energized and charmed her. Karen’s love affair with watercolor has continued, making many friends along the way through the wonderful art leagues and galleries in the area. Her entries in local juried art shows, including the WA State Fair, have garnered her about 30 awards.
