A collaborative partnership between LKN-based artists Deedi Sutton and Karen L. Dortschy.  


The name DeeKar Studios embodies our creative alliance and mutual vision.

Karen and Deedi create one-of-a-kind abstract paintings that speak to your individual soul and spirit. We work together on each one, from start to finish. Each painting is created unintentionally, meaning we have no vision or focus of what they become until they start coming to life.


We work with professional-quality acrylic paints, archival-quality canvas, and occasional gifts from nature, like leaves, flowers or other embellishments.


 Deedi has extensive experience as a very creative professional artist, seamstress and quilter,
and has resided in Lake Norman area of North Carolina for more than 20 years. 
She brings amazing insight and talent to the collaborative studio.
