Karen sculpts out of native timber with an interest in reflecting the energy and essence of life forms and lines within the NZ landscape.
Following on from attaining a Bachelor of Education Degree from Auckland University, Karen gained a qualification in Graphic Design at AUT before moving to Australia and completing a Visual Arts Degree at James Cook University, in her final year achieving Top Sculpture Award 2002. After this, Karen spent 3 years teaching Art and Senior Design at Diocesan School for Girls where she became Head of the Senior Design Department. Karen then went on to pursue a full time career in art and has remained a full time artist since 2006, regularly exhibiting nationally and internationally.
Karen’s skillfully honed sculptures are valued for their aesthetic balance and soulful depth, they have found their way into homes, offices, personal and public collections across Aotearoa and throughout the world.
