“Too much television watching got me chasing dreams.”
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Karen moved to LA in the winter of 2011, armed with not much more than a Moleskine, Sharpies and a desire to create.
The vibrant and eclectic punk rock scene of Sydney in the early 2000s gave her the opportunity to develop and hone her creative skills. She created tour posters, screen-printed t-shirts and designed album art for bands she played bass in, as well as other artists in the scene.
She graduated from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Design, majoring in graphics and textiles. She has since accumulated over ten years of experience in broadcast and film, most recently spending three years as a creative at brand consultancy Troika in LA, before joining the team at The Ether.
Her interests include illustration, typography, hand-illustrated typography, creative writing, old school punk rock, Brazilian jiu jitsu, Crossfit and gettin’ shredded.
