Karen Chare's Profile

About

I was raised in Zambia in Central Africa and now live on the Island of Maui. I am married to a wonderful man who is an author and currently have two dogs, a Labrador cross called Beau and a chocolate labrador puppy called Sam after Samwise Gangee from The Lord of the Rings. I started decorating gourds not long after we moved to Maui and I find their infinite variety inspirational. I also love lapidiary and enjoy shaping various stones for use in jewellry. Recently, after a trip to New Zealand, I have become interested in bone carving and have produced a few pieces that I am pleased with.
