Karen is a ceramic artist who works with porcelain, thrown and then altered to create flowing abstract sculptures.
She has recently introduced coloured clay into her work, making her own shades of blue porcelain by adding oxides, which is then thrown with white porcelain.
Items from her new work have been selected for an exhibition at Quay Arts Centre, Newport, on the Isle of Wight and will be on display from 29th July to 22nd September.
Her work will also be on show at Art in Clay at Hatfield House, Hertfordshire from 18th - 20th August 2017 and at the British Craft Trade Fair at The Old Truman Brewery in London from 10th to 12th September.
A selection of her work is currently on display at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire.
