Karen works with local communities to create artworks for their spaces, she has worked with groups with different backgrounds, ages and abilities and has always found it incredibly rewarding and inspiring to work with people and share their stories and ideas.

"I work in a way that creates a fun and productive atmosphere that allows those involved in the process an arena to share their ideas and opinions. I like to encourage people to think outside the box, taking things away from their obvious and expected paths. Research is also fundamental to my working method as it gives a project depth and a sense of belonging."
