We are excited to announce our Artist of the Month for May 2022, Karen Roodman! Karen is formally trained as a dancer and kinesiologist and is a self-taught painter who brings her passion for movement to the canvas. Her impressionistic paintings use bold color to render the beauty of nature and city scapes. Karen was born in St. Louis MO and has lived in Richmond since 1989 with her husband and three children. VEI is excited to display her artwork that is available for purchase.
