Her work is suitable for kids and playful adults. She works across several disciplines, including surface pattern design, children’s books, book cover design and portrait commissions. Karen is open to licensing, collaborations and commissions. She loves learning new things, and is also keen to expand into editorial illustrations.

She works in a combination of traditional and digital mediums, and recently discovered the fun of drawing with Procreate for iPad.
