Although born in Halifax, Karen spent most of her childhood in the Basingstoke area. Her love of arts & crafts developed at an early age learning painting and marquetry at her mother’s knee and carpentry and electronics at her father’s.

Despite this love of and thorough grounding in the arts Karen graduated with a BSc and her initial training was as an industrial pharmaceutical chemist.

Years later whilst renovating her home and having become a new mother her love of craft resurfaced and she switched careers to teaching science, both in school and for the open university. Her art resurfaced as her hobby.

Karen is now a full-time artist; she takes commissions and as a qualified teacher teaches both locally and further afield. She is still living in the Basingstoke area sharing her home and studio with her beautiful arts & crafts and two elderly cats!!!
