Biography


 
KAREN FITZGERALD lives and works in Newburyport, MA.  She was an art/photo teacher in the public schools for 28 years. "As far as I can remember, I always wanted to be an artist. I fell in love with the watercolor medium at an early age and although I have dabbled in many different media, it is still my medium of choice, my first love. Photography is a wonderful medium. It forces me to work with details, composition and the light/color in front of me.”
