Karen E. Lewis grew up on the water, swimming, kayaking and later guiding rafting tours down the Deschutes River. She came to painting accidentally, but quickly became obsessed. Water naturally became her main subject, and a new way for her to connect with what she treasured the most. Karen’s landscapes, with their warm tones and atmospheric light, project a great love of the scenery and nature.

I certainly cannot claim to be an expert on art, but I know what moves me. I enjoy Karen E. Lewis’s paintings each time I pass through our living room… somehow she’s able to capture on canvas why I love living in the Northwest. — J. Kerekanich
Karen E. Lewis’s Northwest oils and watercolors have long been important elements in our collection. Her skies are simply breathtaking and her ability to capture the luminescence of the Atlantic is truly unique. –John & Nancy Peace
The serenity of the Oregon Coast, no one captures the nuances of Northwest landscapes quite like Karen E. Lewis. Lewis’s oils unmistakably invoke a sense of place, which is why we have become enthusiastic collectors. — David & Karen Lutes
