Karen has been associated with Grizedale Arts since 2000. For ‘A Different Weekend’ she produced and sited a series of event signs in differing 'folk' styles, and she later appeared as one part of a pantomime horse. Working as ‘People from Off’ with Anna Best, Simon Poulter and Nina Pope she developed the live webcast, the ‘Festival of Lying’ in 2001. For ‘Golden - Live in Your Forest’ she worked with the local Satterthwaite & Rusland Women's Institute to make a jubilee cake, and in 2003 she made ‘Welcome To’, a lo-fi musical film set in Grizedale Forest, with many local dance groups.
In collaboration with Nina Pope (aka Somewhere) she won the Northern Art Prize in 2008, their show featuring a number of Grizedale works including a multiple depicting an idealised Lawson Park –‘Titchy / Kitschy’ (2009), available from the Grizedale shop.
Karen works in an occasional freelance capacity for Grizedale Arts.
