    Such clean, precise work Karen! You are definitely a ‘master’!!!

  • Coming from the master herself, that’s such lovely praise – thank you Lynda!!! I don’t know how you find the time to create all your masterpieces and browse everyone else’s work as well. I’m hoping to catch up on a bit of browsing over the next couple of weeks, while I have a break from doing art and that includes your own amazing portfolio!!! xx
