While spending a few days by myself exploring Santiago, I met the lovely and talented textile designer, Karen Barbé. She kindly shared her work, exceptional studio and her city with me over a wonderful few hours. It's so different to experience a place with an exceptional artist and local, huh? The best type of guide. Karen's mother made us a wonderfully rich chocolate walnut cake! Such lucky girls we were.
Karen works in a variety of mediums, and seems bursting with creativity, ideas and different applications of her joyful color scheme and craft. I love her work and urge you to check it out -- You will leave her site inspired! Karen's latest endeavor is to teach embroidery workshops.
