Karen recently received her Master of Fine Arts Degree with Distinction from Edinburgh College of Art.

Previously she studied at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY to earn her Bachelor of Science in Studio Art, Magna Cum Laude. Working mainly in titanium she takes inspiration from her immediate environment, inspired by natural Scotland and exhibitions she visits.

While she grew up in Boston, MA she spent much of her life travelling in the attempt to see as much of the world as possible. Because of this she adapts to and is deeply influenced by her environment. But it also means that the concept of home is confusing to her, and is not so much dependent on place, but the people and objects she is connected to.

Scotland is her current home where she feels the most connected, and the land and history there strengthen this connection. She is currently Artist in Residence at ECA where she continues to develop her work.
