costume designer

Karen tells the story of a character’s life through what they wear. She believes that every character has a culture, a background, a style, that depicts their life in detail.  The clothes they wear tell that story. 

Karen has worked for film studios including Disney, Marvel, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros., and 20th Century Fox on projects such as “X-Men: First Class” with director Matthew Vaughn, “Captain America 2” with director Joss Whedon, and “Mud” with Jeff Nichols. 

Karen aims to bring a fresh spark to her work and infuse it with sincerity. Her small town background, adventuresome nature, and innate interest in research brings a unique understanding to POETLove's table.
