Painter and photographer Karen J. Lloyd graduated in 2004 with Departmental Honors from the University of Vermont with a BA in English and minor in Animal Studies.

Her award-winning photography has featured in juried exhibitions in Boston, MA and throughout Vermont, and can be found in private collections throughout the United States as well as internationally, from Canada to as far away as Japan.

Karen’s artwork has been juried into group exhibits at the Winooski Pop-Up Gallery (2011), The Darkroom Gallery (2012 - 2014), VSA VT's Engage Exhibit (2012 - 2013), Third Annual UVM Alumni Art Exhibit (2013), and Boston's Institute for Human Centered Design (2014). Solo / featured artist exhibits include at the Block Gallery & Coffeehouse (2011) and at the O'Brien Community Center (2013). Her photography has also featured at the Winooski Memorial Library Gallery (2010), The Firefly Collective (2012), Winooski Holiday Art Market (2012), Burlington Beer Company (2014), Artists' Mediums (2011 - 2014) and Visions of Vermont Gallery (NVAA Show 2014). 

Growing up in the historic, coastline village of Mystic, CT, Karen found herself surrounded by premier examples of contemporary art from a young age. Her earliest public exhibitions took place as a youth at two esteemed Connecticut galleries: the Mystic Art Association and Lyme Art Association.

Her first winning painting entry was an acrylic in the Youth division at a Niantic, CT fine art show. During her college years she continued to draw, paint and photograph her inspirations, but it would be five years after graduation until she decided to take the plunge into art shows once again. In 2009, Karen entered her photography in a show for the first time, a decision that was rewarded with winnings for two of her photography entries at the Champlain Valley Fair Art Exposition in Essex, VT: "Fair Parade Percherons" and "Dragonfly Trio" received 3rd place and Honorable Mention awards respectively. Her painted model horses have earned numerous championships in the Northeast and have gone on to be recognized with some of the hobby’s highest awards at the North American Nationals in 2012 and 2013.

She is a current member of the Northern Vermont Artist Association (NVAA).

The artist currently resides in Winooski, Vermont with her two precocious house rabbits, Squirrel and Solstice.
