Digital artist, Karen Burke, develops innovative, in-demand, and ironic designs that feature ordinary animals doing extraordinary human activities. Her ultimate artistic goal is to share her sense of humor with the world by creating whimsical art prints that are lively, light-hearted and make people laugh out loud. Having served as a nurse for nearly 30 years, Karen knows firsthand that laughter is always the best medicine and believes that everyone needs a bit of fun and fantasy in their lives - a moment or two to forget life's stresses and crafts every new, iconic image with this underlying mission in mind. Her repertoire also includes tribute art - or fun fine art - in which she takes paintings from the Old Masters, like Vermeer, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Da Vinci and reinvents them with animals in the place of their human subjects, oftentimes inspiring and sparking an interest in art history among her viewers. Karen has won several art contests, and her work has been featured in numerous high-profile magazines, including Ink and National Geographic, one of her proudest moments and greatest accomplishments as an artist. Fans of Karen can find her images on products from manufacturers including Evergreen Enterprises, Bits and Pieces, Masterpieces Puzzle Company, Playview Brands Puzzles, TCG Toys, Suns Out Puzzles, Nobleworks Cards, iCanvas Wall Art, Crown Point Graphics, Willow Creek Press, Leap Year Publishing, and other reputable brands.
