Polymeri Online 25.1.07


Karen Lorraine was born and raised in Surrey, England. she has done many different things for a living, from being an environmental chemist to an aerobics instructor, but her passion, her bliss, has always been art. all its many forms.
her current obsession is faces. she draws them on beads as well as on wall hangings.


how does she do it?

The beads that have faces or fairies on them are done by hand drawing directly onto a polymer bead. Layers of translucent clay and sometimes polyurethane are then applied to seal and protect the drawing. No two are ever alike.
her beads have become all about the sketch or drawing, as she consider the bead a tiny canvas for my art.
