This is the Esty.com store for Karen Sabatello’s Arte & Vita (Art & Life) business. Karen is a self taught artist who has been enthralled by decorative painting since childhood. She says that giving something old new life gives them even more character. She’s been painting for over 25 years, focusing on topics that reflect her interests and passions. Her hand painted glasses, candle holders and vases are among the most beautiful we have seen. She is also happy to personalize her art.
