Karen Elkan

I grew up in NW Montana, and moved to New York in the late 80’s. After raising 3 children, I am now devoting more time to my artwork. My work has been primarily black & white pencil drawings, but I also work in pastels, and am now developing my oil painting.
My work is all nature or western oriented and is done in a realistic style. I work from my own photographs and sketches.

I am currently available for commissioned portraits. All portraits are worked from photographs. These can be provided by the client, or can be taken by the artist for a $50 fee. If the photographs were taken by a professional photographer, you must get a written release from the studio or photographer for use.

I ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit before begining work. The balance will be due upon delivery. I include the mat, if requested at no charge.
