karen leigh studios | About

Karen Leigh I started studying photography with the New York Institute of Photography in 2006. Currently the desire to create has led me to explore many other mediums in addition to photography. My work is available online for purchase either through my website or in my Etsy store. 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, which is most important, my husband Dean, our two sons, Dean and Matt and my three grandchildren, Dean, Addy, Charlotte and my pets.  Thank you for your interest in my work, and my journey!

Carol Lynn Ruth 1941 - 2003
Formally of Carol Lynn Studios is a traditional artist with strong roots in abstract realism. She was a BA graduate of Notre Dame in Baltimore Maryland majoring in Studio Art. She has traveled throughout the world, capturing images photographically, or sketching impromptu. She was actively painting and drawing all of her life. She held memberships in the Carroll County Arts Guild, the Carroll County Arts Council, The Frederick County Art Association, the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center and the National Society of Decorative Painters.
