Karen hails from Llandudno and has been a craft enthusiast for 'too long', and a felt artist for the last 8 years.
A compulsive maker, I have been producing objects in a variety of media for many years. Originally, I trained as a potter at Camberwell College of Arts, London. Not having a kiln, I started to make pieces using papier mache, but for the last 8 years, I have been consistently making felt. Surface decoration is my passion and I love the variety of techniques which can be achieved using the simple wool roving. I live by the sea, and have been looking, recently, at imagery associated with it - tattoos, fruit machines and fairgrounds. Vintage clothing and accessories, especially 50's prints, are a joy and I love the bags of Enid Collins.
