Step into the design studio
I’m Karen, the visual artist, brand designer, Coca-Cola sipper and dedicated hand-letterer here at A Thousand Faces.
So … how did I get here? Well, art has always been a part of my life.
As a child, I was extremely introverted, and I happily lost and found myself in the classes at the local craft shop.
Creating with your hands is incredibly therapeutic, and this love of creating has been my dependable sidekick throughout my life, supporting me through many of life’s ups and downs as I moved from photographer’s assistant to in-house designer, from Newcastle to Brisbane (and back again) and from designer side-gig to full-time business.
After two decades of designing in-house for others, I started A Thousand Faces with the desire to support other women by changing the face of their business for success.
At the heart of this desire, was a dear friend whose business dreams I had supported for many years with my design services.
After watching her business, brand and confidence grow, I was thrilled to see her succeed. But why stop at helping just one woman … when I could help a thousand of them?
I believe in balance over busy, non-fiction over fiction, hot chocolate over coffee and purpose paired with passion.
Café order: Hot chocolate and croissant.
A dab hand at: Hand-lettering and cuddling my munchkins.
Absolutely atrocious at: Writing.
In my former life, I was a: Wedding cake baker.
Currently getting creative in: Newcastle, NSW
