About the Author
Painter Master Karen Sperling is the original Corel Painter expert.
She has been writing about and teaching Painter longer than anyone.
She demo'd Painter when it debuted at Boston Macworld in
August 1991 after having written the first Painter manual. She
went on to write the manuals for the next several versions of
Painter and wrote several published Painter books, including the
highly acclaimed first volume of Painting for Photographers,
available on Amazon for either Painter X/11 or Painter 12.
Painting for Photographers Volume 2 is around her 9th or 10th
Painter book, including the manuals.
Karen traditionally published the first printed Painter magazine,
Artistry, and the first Painter ezine, Artistry Tips and Tricks. Karen's
Painter tutorials have appeared in many publications including
SBS Design, PEI magazine, Professional Photographers magazine and
Rangefinder. She also creates Painting for Photographers videos and
DVD's and Kindle articles for painting photos in Painter and Photoshop.
Karen has taught and demo'd Painter for over 20 years all over the
United States at just about every venue there is, including the
national Professional Photographers of America (PPA) convention,
local PPA affiliates and PPA schools; WPPI; American Film Institute;
Macworld; Seybold; and SIGGRAPH. She has taught Painter at many
companies and schools, including Disney, American Greetings and
the New School for Social Research in New York.
Karen also leads her popular Artistry Retreats, where professional
photographers and hobbyists learn the art lessons and the Painter
steps to turn portrait and landscape photos into paintings.
Karen paints portraits both directly for clients and for photographers
to sell to their clients and her abstract art has been exhibited in
New York's prestigious Chelsea section, in Los Angeles and during
Art Basel Miami. Karen's paintings are held in private collections
around the world.
