Caren Garner has been painting for more than 30 years. She has studied with numerous artists in workshops and classes both in Arkansas and during her stay in Washington DC.

Caren has also done murals for several Little Rock restaurants; she teaches art and is a member of the Conway League of Artists and Mid-Southern Watercolorists. She is also available for floral design, faux finishing and interior design work.
Caren’s work has won numerous awards and she is currently represented by Butler Center Galleries in Little Rock.
A lover of experimentation, Caren does experimental and non-objective work in watercolor, acrylics, mixed media and collage and is currently using a lot of textural elements. A favorite subject is wildlife, especially African wildlife. She is also adept in a variety of work including florals, landscapes, portraits, and abstract/non-objective work. Her goal is to share her passion, energy and love of art in her work.
Caren is a mother of two children and MiMi of eight grandchildren. She is a retired Craft Care Specialist of Help Hospitalized Veterans and has enjoyed many years of sharing her love of both arts and crafts with our veterans at our VA hospitals in Little Rock, North Little Rock, and at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington DC. Caren retired in 2013 and moved back to Conway, AR and is looking forward to having more time to devote to making and teaching art.
