At a young age, Karen had the opportunity to learn various fiber arts techniques from her grandmother Marguerite Christensen, including knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross-stitching, bargello, and yarn twisting. Later, she went on to study advertising and fiber arts at Rowan University where she was mentored by Kumiko Murashima, a fiber professor who taught her weaving, batik, and fabric relief printing.
In addition to her fiber arts education, Karen holds a degree in Desktop Publishing from Ocean County Vocational School and has worked as a graphic designer. During her career, she created materials such as catalogs, brochures, book covers, websites, and newsletters.
Karen was also a social media marketer and entrepreneur for Awaken with Angels. Now, she spends her days immersed in fiber arts and hopes to inspire others to find creativity in their lives.
I pray you are blessed to have creativity in your life. ~ Karen
