KAREN BIGELOW, one of the founders of The Writers' Circle of Durham Region (WCDR), has spent the last several years pursuing her other passion, painting. Today she is recognized as an exceptional artist, specializing in various techniques – acrylic, silverpoint, watercolour.

Now she would like to share her artistic passion with you.

Her work has been featured in juried art exhibitions and a variety of local galleries.  In 2010, her silverpoint "Badlands of Alberta" was accepted into the Canadian National Landscapes Exhibition.
