About Me


Enjoy before


I am Karen. What you see is not all there is. I am an artist, a tired one at that. My greatest love are people, sure aren't we nothing without them. Appreciate them more in solitude. I do think a bit too much and have great playful fun. Easy going head on me with not much time for dramas anymore.


It is all in the details.
