Karen Manci is a Fort Collins watercolor artist, wildlife ecologist, and an avid hiker. Her goal is to create art that celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of nature all around us. She feels watercolor is the ideal medium to capture the mood and subtle tones of a special moment in nature. 


Karen’s nature paintings have been invited to more than a half-dozen shows and exhibitions during the past 2 years. 


She hopes her paintings will spark memories of a special place in nature for others, or perhaps encourage someone to explore our Colorado wild places.
