Sunday Selection-Karen Jacobs

My Sunday Selection is painter Karen Jacobs. I met Karen in Memphis a few years ago. We both were represented by a gallery there. I stopped in Alabama at her home/studio as well. I enjoyed seeing her large studio space and her beautiful home. Karen is an incredibly nice woman who has a successful art career.

I wanted to feature someone today who has balanced it all.  I am inspired by Karen's pursuits and accomplishments as an artist, wife, and mother. It's not easy just doing one of these things, and I celebrate someone who has kept a thriving art career and family life mixed in. It's a wonderful thing. Happy Mother's Day to all of you who do the same!
