Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

Great interview, Karen, and beautifully illustrated with your stuff. I always have a very definite sense of you knowing what you're about with your work - why you do it and what inspires you.
I also get a sense of your success finally taking off, and very well deserved it is too. I love your portfolio and gallery plans.

Just one question though... 'Calm'?
