Karen says of her work:

“Weaving has been in my life since college where I studied Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York city. After a career in textiles, weaving became my ‘go to’ avocation. Tapestry weaving is relatively new to me and wedge weave was an enigma. My dream was to complete a wedge weave tapestry.”
