About the Artist:

Karen McEachern Cass holds a BFA in Studio Art from Emmanuel College and an MFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston, MA.

Having taught at several colleges, universities and private schools in the Boston area, she later established Karma Studio, a productive art workshop in her home, where she taught private lessons for over a decade while raising her 2 children. She maintains a busy studio schedule and exhibits her work regularly.

She currently teaches full time as the Art Specialist for grades 2-4 at Center Elementary School in Hanover, MA.

Karen’s paintings are devoted to her love of nature and a concern for our fragile, yet miraculously resilient environment. Her other-worldly landscapes, explorations of watery surfaces, plant-life and memories from her travels evoke a sense of place, storytelling and adoration of our precious natural resources.

Her work has been shown throughout New England and in New York City. She has been an active Gallery Artist at South Shore Art Center since 2012 and has won several awards for her paintings. She served as the Artist in Residence at the South Shore Art Center from 2014 – 2016. She is also an active member of the Hanover Cultural Council.

Karen’s paintings are held in several private and public collections, including Boston’s State House, South Shore Hospital and Fidelity Investments.
