Hi there! I offer Hand-drawn and hand-painted
illustration and surface pattern design
for the fashion + beauty industries
I am now available for commission work + live sketching + custom portraits, and would love to work with you!
1 | Custom Work
I create illustrations + surface pattern designs for different kinds of projects like advertising, branding, packaging, editorial, events, marketing materials, stationery products, and fashion shows.
My technique involves hand-drawing + hand-painting (I use watercolors). And I’m also able to work with the iPad Pro + the app Procreate.
2 | Live Sketching
I’m now booking Live Sketching sessions to be delivered from August 2017 in Milan, Italy. I can use different materials like markers, color pencils, watercolors, my iPad Pro, etc. And, I can draw or paint on handbags, make-up bags, footwear etc. It’ll depend on the project you have in mind 😉
If you have an event such as a fashion runway, shop opening, new collection party, gala, bridal party, etc., and you’re interested in including live sketching, please contact me as soon as possible because I’m booking these sessions far in advance.
3 | Custom Portraits
I open a few spots for custom portraits every month. Your portrait can be of yourself, your friends, your pets, your wedding, your wedding dress, or your favorite picture.
If you’re interested in any of these, please click the button below and fill up the form, once you send your details I’ll get back to you asap 🙂

Karen is great to work with, very thorough and a great designer. And not to mention, great value for the work she does, which is always a plus. I now have her as one of my regular designers. – Raj S., Origany
Karen was amazing. She was always well spoken, knowledgeable, creative, and enthusiastic about the job. Her drawings were fabulous and she is well deserving of any creative jobs from here moving forward. I would definitely work with her again. – David S.
It has been very good working with Karen A. There was never a time when I had problems with her – she was very professional and always on time. The first project I did with her, lead me to work with her on another project, and in both cases I was satisfied. – Nataliah E., Kuivr
Karen is very talented and professional. She incorporated our concept and turned it into a detailed tech-pack. I look forward to working with her again. Highly recommended! – Daniel R., Satchel + Page
