Artist Statement

I am a full time dog walker and illustrator. The dog walking gives me time to think and get ideas. I try to had humor with my designs and they have a innocent,childlike quality as you can see by my style. My British sense of humor can be seen in some of the designs too and i am always open to new ideas and challenges. this year I was commissioned to create the Super Reader character for the City of Fort Lauderdale reading scheme. I am an active volunteer in the community and always believe in giving back where possible.
I can be hired to produce "one of kind" illustrations to beautifully capture the essence of you. Why not gift yourself or a friend a Karen Sint-Genies original illustration today. Its something you will cherish forever.
