About Karen Arends
Karen loves a celebration! Her fiber art reflects that love of ceremony. Inspired by her work as a Minister of Metaphysics, Karen listens deeply to create memorable and meaningful pieces for life’s special moments, seasonal ceremonies, and personal altars. She relishes creating custom pieces … hearing your story inspires!
Reflecting on the changing of the seasons, the four elements, and the Goddess in all women, Karen brings her love of the Earth in to her art … drawing on decades of environmental advocacy and research in environmental chemistry.
From crafting as a long-time seamstress, knitter, and quilter, Karen has taken her creativity into the realm of art worked in fibers of all kinds. She enjoys the surprise of creating her own fabrics using natural dyes and processes. Sometimes she is inspired by a piece of music, or a quotation, but sometimes the inspiration comes from a beautiful piece of fabric itself.
