Karen was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan and began her studies of textile design at the University of Michigan before transferring to Rhode Island School of Design where she received her BFA with a concentration in Textiles.
Her work references a variety of patterning and forms found in flora, marine life, nature and man-made spatial structures. Her hand built classic forms often have a sense of fragmented time-worn objects. Karen remains fascinated with textures and patterns and her work intentionally invites the viewer to touch and feel the surfaces.
Karen has her studio in the town of Dartmouth, Massachusetts where she lives with her husband, their dog and calico cat.
