About Conservation Artist Karen Talbot


Karen Talbot is an award-winning scientific illustrator and conservation artist known primarily for her work with fishes, birds and botanicals. Living on the rocky coast of midcoast Maine, Karen takes her inspiration from oceans, streams, canyons, and mountains where she regularly dives, fishes and climbs.

An ardent conservationist, she aims to educate through her art, and she donates a percentage of sales to help conserve wildlands (and waters) that inspire her. Karen works in a variety of media, including watercolor, pen & ink and acrylic. Collected by anglers, divers, birders, scientists, and anyone passionate about the beauty of the natural world, Karen's artwork can be found worldwide at art shows, galleries, retail stores, restaurants, trade shows, and fishing tournaments, as well as in books, magazines, hotels, and, of course, in clients’ homes.
