Karen Dreyer


Leawood, KS





Artist Bio: "I am originally from Lubbock, Texas and moved to the KC area in 1985 and now reside in Leawood. I received a bachelors degree in nursing from KU and worked in the ICU and the ED for 13 years and retired from nursing after when my children were young.

My mom is an oil painter and I grew up with the smell of turpentine and oil paint in our house. I started painting after nursing and have been a professional painter for many years. I have always been intrigued with ceramics and started taking basic classes in 2020 and fell in love with it. I now split my time between painting and ceramics. My favorite part of the process is my hand built flowers that I add to almost all of my pieces. The hand formed flowers are some thing that I created on my own and developed my own process for making them. I do not use any molds. Along with my flowers my signature style is finishing most of my pieces in a white or off-white glaze. I feel so blessed to be able to create and do some thing that I love every single day of my life. "
