‘My joy is to recreate a beautiful moment 
with exceptional design & craftsmanship in every detail.’
Karie O'Donnell’s love for art and nature was cultivated during her childhood visits with her grandparents in North Carolina. As a Florida resident, moving often, she found peace in her summers there, taking art classes and drawing the wildlife. At 14, Karie's family relocated to Massachusetts where she focused on drafting. By 19, she was drawing the architectural plans for Etienne Aigne and was commissioned for numerous children’s portraits. 

Karie graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. She studied architecture and graphic design at NYIT as well as photography with the University of Pittsburgh’s Semester at Sea, visiting 10 countries around the world. Her oil paintings, graphite drawings, paper sculptures and walnut inks have won numerous awards. She is a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists and is a licensed Massachusetts Wildlife Rehabilitator. 

4/11/24 UPDATE: Hello Spring! 'Simplify & Focus' are my themes... I closed my Art Gallery at the end of March and now fully moved in to my Home Studios. Three easels occupy three spaces while we renovate my future Studio in our walk-up attic. I couldn't be more happier to fully focus on my painting. A few Abstracts recently sold and a few more are showcased in a multi-million dollar home in Hingham. I've been talking with Circle Furniture about consigning pieces as well. Within each Portfolio, here on my Website, I'll continue to update my 'Works on the Easel'! Cheers! ~ Karie
