Karen Leigh I started studying photography with the New York Institute of Photography in 2006. I have more recently been exploring other mediums in addition to photography.  I come from a background of artists, which includes my mother, Carol Lynn Ruth, who I credit all of my creativity and the Lord above!  I work mostly out of my home studio to allow more time with my family, my husband Dean, our two sons, Dean and Matt and my two grandchildren, Dean and Addy and my pets.  Thank you for your interest in me, my art, and my journey!
