Our designs are exclusive to the ARTWORKSOFMAINE Gallery. Come to the gallery May-October each season to purchase the cards and notepapers designed by the gallery director Karen Anne Baldauski (KAB). Karen's first job after college was with Hallmark Cards where she became acquainted with the commercial art world before moving to New York City and England, expanding her design skills and developing to the highest degree in her profession. Karen moved to Maine in 1978 and set up her own graphic design business in Augusta. By 2007, she could retire to the Lubec area to spend more time on creative work to include more paintings and explore felted wool fiber work and dyeing, pushing that new area of endeavor to the realms of magnificence.
From KAB: "As a lifelong professional painter/artist impassioned by beauty and inspired by fabrics, natural materials, color, and Nature, in my fiber work, I aim to preserve the exquisite sheen of pure silk using Shibori techniques and the most permanent and colorfast colors available. Learning new techniques through experimentation, I develop creative expressions to satisfy my need to explore the human spirit as a force for goodness on Earth."
Many of Karen's paintings and designs, illustrations, and photographs are depicted in the hundreds of cards available in our galleryshop. Come visit!
You'll find our cards are affordable and probably you won't leave without a piece of printed artwork you can share...or, frame!
