Karen S. Evans

I have always loved creating. As a child, while on vacation with my parents, I would sit in the cabin and draw as my father and brother fished all day. My small high school didn’t offer art as a subject and being unable to attend college, I immediately began working after graduation, as a typesetter at the Winchester newspaper.


My life’s work has been in the printing industry at a few different newspapers, including the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel. As the printing industry changed, so did my job description, going from printer to graphic artist, creating ads for sales representatives. I retired, after working for 37 years at The Muncie Star-Press.


Always wanting a creative outlet, I began oil painting lessons in the late 1980s with various artists including Steve Ross (son of the famous Bob Ross), Martha Searcy, and Phyllis Whitworth. My daughter and I studied drawing for a while with Dorothy Humbarger in Metamora. For the past several years I’ve studied painting with my friend, Pati Sparks.


I have entered artwork at our local Mooreland Free Fair and have received several ribbons. One of my entries was chosen grand champion as well as the people’s choice award. I focus mainly on landscapes, but I have also dabbled in painting flowers and portraits.
