Queen of the Night

Hylocereus undatus, Gouache by Karen Kluglein

Karen Kluglein was born into an artistic family. Her mother was a watercolorist and her father a woodworker.  After graduating from the School of Visual Arts she worked as an illustrator primarily of food packaging. This transitioned into botanical painting after having seen an ASBA show a few years back and realizing this was where she belonged. She enjoys finding that special subject and being inspired to paint it. Karen has won awards in ASBA shows and has exhibited at Filoli Gardens and the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation. She teaches for The New York Botanical Garden and on Long Island.

A catalog of the artwork and profiles of the artists is available online from the ASBA for $20 plus shipping & handling.
