Karen Bonaker

Karen is an Elite Painter Master and a long-standing member of the Painter Advisory Board. She discovered Corel Painter 20 years ago, and she has since enjoyed creating digital images and teaching thousands of students how to paint digitally. Karen believes traditional art principles can be applied digitally to produce artwork that defies distinction.

With her traditional art background and her state-of-the-art skills, Karen has been able to bridge two worlds and teach students how to apply traditional painting techniques to the digital canvas working with Painter. Karen believes everyone has the ability to draw and paint, but they need to learn how to progress. She saw a need for digital art education, so she founded the DAA in 2007 to help students achieve their artistic goals.
