Denver, Colorado - United States




Originally from Montreal, Canada, Karen Roehl moved to Denver as a youngster in 1967. She has enjoyed living in the growing and vibrant Mile-High City, where she raised her two daughters, Vesla and Andria. ​

Roehl began her artistic career when she completed a design program at the Art Institute of Colorado in 1987. She enjoyed a successful career as a graphic artist for over 20 years, the last eight of which were spent running her own design business.​ ​

Satisfying a life-long desire to expand her creative talents into the fine arts, she entered the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program at University of Colorado at Denver in 2004. Roehl continued working with graphic design while attending classes full time. She was the recipient of the Colorado Scholarís scholarship award in 2007, UCDís Fellowship award in 2006 and 2007, and completed her BFA degree in December 2007, graduating magna cum laude.

Recently, Roehl joined the faculty at Art Studentís League of Denver where she teaches classes in basic and abstract painting. She also holds private workshops for those interested in focused and individual attention on specific subject matter. ​

Roehl is currently represented by Denver Art Company and Elevate, a division of Walker Fine Art, both in Denver, CO. Exhibitions of her work include a solo show at Jung Gallery, Denver in 2008. She was also a select artist featured in the award-winning design showroom, TOWN, at the Denver Design Center; has been invited to, and participated in, a number of group and juried exhibits in the Denver area; held dual and solo shows at Ice Cube Gallery, Denver, in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013; a select artist show at Walker Fine Art in 2012; and has been repeatedly represented at Art Expos in Las Vegas and NY.
