Art in the Storefront, Ambler PA


In addition to my graphic design and publishing business, I am a painter, and over the next few weeks I will be putting final touches on  new paintings for “Then and Now,”  an exhibition at Ambler’s Art in the Storefront. This show will include paintings from when I was a young painter through today. The works for the exhibition will show a progression in my work including portrait, still life, and landscape paintings.

Save the date and stop by for the opening on Friday November 20, 2015, from 5:30–7pm. Art in the Storefront is a sidewalk event, and the work will be in the window of Denney Electric, so please dress for the weather and an enjoyable time! The show will be up until January 13, 2016. Street parking is available as well as a municipal parking lot. To see an animation of my painting process check out the slide show on the home page.

Artist Authoring Tool

Artist-Author template-inprogress

Solving theblank page” or “TMI” Writing Dilemma
I am in the midst of developing an interactive authoring tool for artists to help them write about their art technique. The template will help artists organize material for professional publication or teaching an online or face-to-face class or workshop. Artists will also be able to document their working methods so others may reference it in the future. Here’s a sneak glimpse at the first page of the prototype. If you are interested to know when this becomes available for use, or you think you have an art technique book in you, please send me a message in the comments below or an email to karen (dot) kappe (at) I look forward to hearing from you!
