Karen Smith Mangold

 
Bandera, TX

Artist's Statement

I was raised in a ranching family with an appreciation for all things natural, so I continue to honor those ideals with western and wildlife being the focus of my art. I chose oil painting as my medium because of its richness and color vibrancy.

I feel like my talent is a gift that was given to me, and I'm so happy to have been able to express it and share it with others. Along with painting, I'm also a sculptor but do not plan on actively pursuing that medium.

My commercial art career was the priority for many years as our two sons were growing up. Some years I would pursue my fine art career--participating in national shows like the Phippen and Mountain Oyster, but other priorities would move in and my art career would take a back seat. So it's wonderful that I'm able to invest in myself again. I was born in Texas and still live here in the Hill Country south of Bandera with my husband Mike, on his family's cattle ranch.
