Author and Illustrator

Karen Penn has always enjoyed hearing a good story ever since her mother used to read to her and her siblings when she was a little girl. Family crafts were also something regularly done when she was a child and she believes the stories and the crafts helped develop a passion to illustrate and write children’s books today. Karen believes in bringing vision to life.


She likes to create books with a moral to foster parent/children relationships and to encourage opportunities for teachable moments.


Karen takes full advantage of the use of vibrant colors, patterns and the allusion of textures in her children's books along with addressing cultural interests and subjects that are often puzzling to children and long forgotten by adults.


Karen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. With her children's books, she also creates logos, book cover designs and brochures. She also creates promotional clips and video memoires.
