About the Illustrator

Hi, I’m Karen, and I’m the illustrator behind the scenes at A Rose Cast. I’m based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but work with clients and stores all around the world. I live with my partner and our three cats, Mog, Toby and Monty, who often influence my Crazy Cat Lady line of products.

Away from illustration I love to buy books faster than I can read them, watch nerdy TV shows and movies, and get lost exploring new places.


You can also find my work on the following online stores:
