Karen Leffel-Massengill knew at a very young age that she wanted to be an artist. Crayons and coloring books were constant companions as her family moved frequently and literally around the world.
Graduating with a BA degree in fine art from Florida State University in 1972, Karen postponed beginning a career in art for that of being a wife and mother. Life has a way of leading us down its own path, and in 1981 she was awarded an associates degree in nursing from Northern Virginia Community College.
Along the way she became a signature artist in the Florida Watercolor Society and the Society of Animal Artists. Birds in Art, an annual international competition, has accepted her entry four times, twice in watercolor and twice in oils.
