Hi I’m Karen, illustrator at must dash. I live in the Southside of Glasgow, drink lots of tea and spend most of my time running around after two little people.

I started must dash in 2012 after I took part in a drawing challenge to create 100 doodles in 100 days.

I work mostly in fine line pen to create characters and stories through pattern, textures and silhouettes, and turn my illustrations into greeting cards, prints and jewellery.

As well as doing my own illustrations I also take on commissions to create bespoke one off illustrations for wedding stationary, anniversaries, birthdays, new baby and other memorable occasions.
