Welcome to my website, packed with information, decoration, illustration and more. . .


I have started to do more illustrative work too, mostly for fun (see my artwork page) although I have also been commissioned to do some book covers and new band logos.

I don’t use Adobe Photoshop – all my work is done with pens, paper and inks; I am rather old fashioned but enjoy the process immensely.

Composing and Arranging...

I’m composing and arranging quite a bit, while my live performances have been divided between touring with May Monday  (www.maymonday.com) and playing at friends’ weddings and funerals, both of which I find really celebratory and beautiful to be involved with.


Lots in the pipeline this year; working on a new accordion design with Mike Nelson (www.machineconcepts.co.uk); new recordings with Karen Street, Tom McElvogue and May Monday. I’m teaching regularly by skype and in Worcester (https://learningaccordion.com/skype-lessons/).I’ll keep you posted as they happen and you can always join my mailing list / blog (http://www.karentweed.com/contact/). I’m also exploring more of my illustrative side….
