CHICAGO - Jan. 4, 2021 - PRLog -- Karen I. Hirsch, an award-winning, Chicago-based visual artist, pivoted during the Coronavirus outbreak by launching an art store online. With the stay-at-home government restrictions imposed in Illinois starting in March, 2019, Hirsch did not have the usual assignment work to photograph corporate, political and sports events, nor could she use her studio for photographing portraits. Instead, she began creating graphic art images that she posted every day on Facebook and Instagram.

With her new archive of graphic art, along with her library of photographic images, Hirsch has developed an art store website where people can purchase prints of her artwork. She is offering to output in a variety of sizes and on various media including fine art paper, canvas, metal and acrylic. Subjects range from nature, travel, cityscapes, landscapes, animals and abstracts.

More images will be regularly added to her site. Hirsch will soon be adding for purchase her unique interpretive art in which she uses image distortion, digital painting, and image montages. She plans to add as an output, printing on wood, In the near future. She will also be adding merchandise which will showcase her images. Items that will be offered include mugs, T-shirts, pillows, tote bags and puzzles.

Hirsch's new shop can be found at
