Karen Kirk is the designer of The Blackberry Rabbit. Her designs reflect her Australian heritage and country upbringing. She has a love of insects and has done a series of her favorites such as bees, dragonflies and butterflies. She also puts her own twist on traditional samplers and very much enjoys creating different ways to finish a project. As a result she also designs many constructed projects – boxes, baskets etc. Karen loves the whole design process - from her drawings on paper, to the charting and ultimately stitching the model.
