Since completing an MA at the Royal College of Art in London in 1996 Karen has divided her time between teaching, raising a family and continuing to make. Karen has taught across the UK to adults, degree students and young children. Currently working from her purpose built studio in the garden Karen produces one-off ceramic work for exhibitions and galleries. Along side a range of ceramic glazed jewellery.
Karen's work is inspired by her love of nature and the outdoors; the lines and patterns within the landscape, the texture of grasses against a stormy grey sky, the subtle variation in colour of a vast open seascape.
