An example of fine art by Karen O'Brien

My Mother wanted me to become an artist but I became a doctor instead.  I served as an Army Family Physician and spent much of my career training young doctors.   As the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq waged, my students and husband were deployed in harm's way.   I turned to nature and art to build resilience.
After serving a tour in Afghanistan, I retired in 2014 with 27 years of service.   I now take care of Veterans part time and spend the rest of my free time painting.
I am a contemporary abstract colorist who uses unique layering  to create an interplay of texture, color and form to create vibrant non-objective and abstract landscapes.
