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 Sofa Beast line of products.
I'm passionate about intersectional feminism and progressive politics, and these issues have a big impact on my work.
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.
