Heart of the Country Show & Sale

Karl Haugen

My experience as an artist began at the age of nine, my fourth grade teacher focused on us. It has taken me that many years to travel, work and accumulate flora and fauna, landscape and people transferred to brush and pencil.

 Most of the work has stayed in my home in Estacada Oregon. Today it is time for a reveal after editing the best I can present to you. My career was actually in the great outdoors dealing with wildfires from the air and ground. Later a permanent job appeared with the National Park Service and exposed me to vast amounts of subjects. 25 years went by fast, and I enjoy everyday I can interpret for you the finest nature lets me paint.
