Caren Garner has been painting for over 30 years. She has studied with numerous artists in workshops and classes both in Arkansas and during her stay in Washington DC. Her work is on display in both private and corporate collections around the country including work done for Walter Reed Army Medical Center and a beautiful patriotic mural on the Palliative Care Unit at the John L McClellan VA Medical Center in Little Rock. Caren has also done murals for several Little Rock restaurants, she teaches art and is a member of Conway League of Artists and Mid-Southern Watercolorists. She is also available for floral design, faux finishing and interior design work.
Caren’s work has won numerous awards and she is currently represented by American Art Gallery in Hot Springs.
A lover of experimentation, Caren does experimental and non-objective work in water media, acrylics, mixed media and collage with the addition lots of textural elements. A favorite subject is wildlife, especially African wildlife. She is also adept in a variety of work including florals, landscapes, portraits, and abstract/non-objective work. Her goal is to share her passion, energy and love of art in her work.
Caren is a Mother of two children and MiMi of eight grandchildren. She is a retired Craft Care Specialist of Help Hospitalized Veterans and has enjoyed many years of sharing her love of both arts and crafts with our veterans at our VA hospitals in Little Rock, North Little Rock, and at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington DC. Caren retired in 2013 and moved back to Conway, AR and is looking forward to having more time to devote to making art.
