Karen is the founding member of SANDQUBE. She is a professional multimedia sculptor who began her sculpting career at age 14 in a pottery studio in Guelph, Ontario in 1983. In 1998 she entered her first international Masters sand sculpting contest and by 2001 she was working full time as a free-lance sculptor. Her passion, curiosity and many incredible mentors lead her to embrace this unusual career.

Her work takes her around the world, collaborating with friends, festivals and companies in Canada, the USA, Japan, Mexico, Italy, Holland, Spain, England, UAE, South Korea, Taiwan, and Australia.
