Having just completed a degreein Applied Arts at the University of Hertfordshire, Karen has set up a glass studio at Parndon Mill in Harlow. Karen specialises in kiln formed glass and in particular producing sculptural forms that are castfrom the environment.

Karen has just completed a residency commission for Essex County Councl “A Crowd of Memories”. This was a collaborative installation with Rhoda Webb to collect memories from residents of a care home and create a hanging installation. It also involved running several school workshops to encourage year 11 and 12 pupils to engage in discussions with their own relatives.
