We spent a wonderful morning in the company of this very talented lady;  she lives in Surrey and is a textile artists who has worked for some of the world’s top fashion designers and now uses her talents to create stunning unique pieces from the objects she finds around her  – and in charity shops!


Here we are busy chatting over one of her ‘lace skirts’ which were in an earlier exhibition




She is however currently working on her Monkey Tricks exhibition entitled ‘Singerie’ – 5th Nov -30th November 2013 and at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, 28 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 2NA




To see more of Karen’s work you can visit her website: (and she also the author of  a lovely book entitled ‘Embellished – new vintage’)



She is part of a very talented textile household as her husband (Peter Clark) works in paper collage: – you can see his work when you visit
