I am a creative soul. It’s the air I breathe. I am always looking for new ways to create. I was traditionally an oil painter and theatrical costumer until I discovered a maker space in town that offered all kinds of new technology. The laser cutters presented an amazing opportunity to use materials I hadn't explored before. My influences are rooted in sacred geometry, nature, and architecture. Everywhere I go, I see a mandala design in the making or a new costume shape to be created. I believe the ability for my mind to organize shapes and colors into universally pleasing motifs is one of my greatest strengths and I enjoy sharing it with others.
My name is Karen DeGuire. I am a wife, mother of 2 children, and 3 cats. But mostly, I'm a creative force of nature. My family is incredibly supportive of my work and helps when they can. I am so grateful to be able to realize my passions and share them with the world. It would not have been possible without the support of my family and friends.
