Karen Sydney

Textile Artist

I was supposed to have been a teacher.  Or a tax attorney.  Or a university president — my mother’s idea.  Anything but an artist.  But let’s be honest: it’s my mother’s fault I’m here.  She taught me to sew as a child and I’ve been stitching ever since.  As I got older new crafts joined the party: embroidery, printmaking, weaving, fabric design….  Anything that would help me turn ordinary items into something special.
Each artwork on this site is handmade and one of a kind.  The wall art is statement jewelry for the home and office.  It brings color, texture and pattern into your environment.  The wearable pieces are functional art that come fully alive only in partnership with the wearer.  Art that moves through the world, enlivening the everyday.
