Hi, i’m karen!

I love illustrating form through color and design.

Since 2017, I have been illustrating my two chihuahuas, Bandit and Fatboy, and their adventures as they travel the world and experience alternate universes together as brothers. Through these depictions, I want viewers to understand the importance of kin, what it means to help one another, and the beauty of going beyond our own bubbles.

Thank you for being part of my journey. :)
