Karin Randlett studied sculpture with Deborah Butterfield at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, classical drawing with Signora Simi at her atelier in Florence, Italy, and oil painting and color theory with Michael Howard and Charles Emerson at the Academy of Realist Art in Seattle.

Karin's oil paintings are done exclusively using a palette knife applying paint to a canvas that is "stretched" over a board. Paint is applied in thin layers and each layer is allowed to dry before the next is applied. Because of the hard surface that results from the canvas being applied to a board, various layers of texture show through to the final surface.

The paintings are intended to be hung unframed. The edge of the canvas where it meets the board on all four sides is the "frame" for the painting.
