Karen is presently Artist in Residence for the National Trust at Dunsland (N. Devon) where she is walking and drawing, creating a dialogue with the place and people.

'I use drawing as a tool for discovery. My work is about noticing, empathising and exploring. Working outside on a small patch of land or path, I trace that path, walking and drawing. Using simple materials, graphite, ink and resist, I invite the accidental. I use drawing and printmaking to navigate these inner and outer geographies.' KH
I work on my own, in collaboration or as a facilitator for others.
