Karen Niederhut



While running an art gallery I realized that I loved to paint with oil paint. I have worked as a commercial artist, art gallery owner, and painter. My favorite things to paint are horses and people. I am, like most painters, fascinated by gesture, light, form, and color. I’ve been living in Eagle, Idaho for the past 18 years although I am from Colorado. I live a rural lifestyle that includes horses and dogs and occasionally other people. My beloved horse Cougar passed away at 35 years old last year. He has always been my inspiration, and is every horse I paint. I live here in the foothills and the sky, with my husband Tim, three dogs, and the horses.
