I have had the pleasure of knowing Karen for about 3 years. In that time I have seen an extensive amount of her work and have nothing but praise for her creative design ability. She created the logo and business cards for my fitness company from scratch and I could not be more pleased with the results. I was blown away with how the “first draft” came out and I had no desire to make any changes. As someone who is typically extremely picky and OCD this goes to show just how great her work is. She understood my needs based on the very little information I gave her and created a flawless product that I was immediately able to use on my website, marketing materials, and company shirts.
I have also been lucky enough to view Karen’s work in various fields over the years. She is a master of many trades. Some of her work includes hand-crafted jewelry, recipes, artwork, websites, and a host of other creative projects. Karen is a joy to work with and her professionalism, determination, and originality is unmatched. She goes above and beyond in everything she does. I highly recommend her work and will be using her for any future creative design projects. Her wonderful personality makes her a joy to work with and her talent is inspiring to witness. Thank you Karen.

The Studio E.Y.E. (express yourself endlessly)
My Name is Robert Dancik and I have been working in the arts and education for over 35 years teaching all levels from kindergarten through graduate school.
I first met Karen 10 years ago while she was showing her artwork in a gallery show in Connecticut. Her work in the show included jewelry, original watercolors on paper and framed pastels. I was immediately taken with her ability to master each of these very different media while maintaining her voice as an artist.
I later had occasion to see several examples of Karen’s computer graphic work. Again, she exhibited a very high degree of expertise in the technical aspects of computer graphics and combined this with her artistry, which took the work to a much higher level than simply computer generated representations.
My latest contact with Karen has been centered a new gallery/teaching studio I have opened. I hired Karen to make my website, do all the graphics for both on-line and physical advertising and manage the site in all it’s manifestations. In all these areas, Karen has been absolutely terrific! I have received numerous compliments on the graphic quality of my site from other artists and business people and plan on asking her to expand these efforts in the near future.
It is will great confidence that I am able to recommend Karen to fulfill any and all the computer/artistic/graphic needs that may arise.

Karen and I met while working at Pilot Corporation of America. I was so impressed with her portfolio that I asked her to do a portrait of my daughter. I am proud to show it off and say it was done by a colleague and friend.
Karen’s work is always creative and new. Some of her ads for the high end Namiki fountain pens were breathtakingly beautiful.
