Karen Shear Graphic Web Designer

About Karen

I specialise in creating clean, uncluttered and effective designs.

Innate creative flair and a commercial background give me unique design abilities. This means I'm well placed to understand and implement the design and content aspects of your digital communications. I am passionate about the natural world and the visual arts, and love using these elements to inform my designs.
