Welcome to my packed website with new CDs, downloads, publications and cartoony T-Shirts….


I am doing illustrative work too, both as part of my own publications and for commissions.


I’m composing and recording with Tom McElvogue, Karen Street and May Monday. Watch this space….

Christmas Cards from Karen and Friends!!!

Eeeeek! Christmas is coming…. so here’s some fun cards to help you smile your way through it – all available in my online shop!

Despite all that’s happening right now, there’s some very positive and exciting things being planned longterm in my life – perhaps everyone’s?

A chance to reflect and spend time with those we love and letting the creative ideas flow. . .
I’m enjoying teaching a lot by skype and a couple of new recordings are gently being planned too.

Meantime, have a peek below at the videos which capture some of my art and music ideas; many thanks to Richard and Kirsty Pitkin, Lorraine Carpenter, Mike Nelson, my brother Paul and Niall Keegan (University of Limerick) whose inspiration and help I value so dearly. And to all the dear friends along the way, without whom I’d forget to laugh and stop a while.

Bless you all 🙂 Karen xxx
