Karen Biery has spent the majority of her life in the creative realm. She began her career in retail management with a major corporation until she designed, created, and accomplished her dream of opening her own retail environment - Olde English Garden Company - in Salem, Ohio. at a young age, she studied watercolors under the instruction of Tom McNickle and later attended Kent State University for creative writing. At that moment, Karen realized that the two - painting and writing- were two halves that performed best together, creating the whole picture. She has designed the covers of Chattels, believe, pieces, of Home, and speakeasy through photography and watercolors as well as illustrating the interior.
Karen lives in northeast Ohio with her husband, Jeff, when they are not enjoying their home in Florida. She is a happy step-mom and proud grandma of two.
