Karen Amador lives in sunny Las Vegas with her husband, baby boy, and two mischievous pups. Originally from the Midwest, she grew up the youngest in a family of five that encouraged creativity, showing interest in drawing from a very early age. She was also raised on the best of old-school Disney and has held a life-long love of animation. She often doodled cartoons in the margins of her notebooks instead of paying attention in class, and her only formal art training was the one year she flunked out of art school (go figure!). In her early working days she was known for making fancy name tags that her coworkers actually liked to wear, and she landed her first professional gig as an airbrush artist while in her early twenties.
These days Karen attempts to balance her time of being a full-time mom while running a business from home, often drawing with one hand while soothing her baby with the other. Her main goal is to make others smile by sharing her art and designs, and she is ecstatic that the support of her fans allows her to do what she loves while staying at home to raise her son.
